This is from the xorg.conf of the installer. Taken with xterm launched 
from the disk partitioning expert mode.
Section "Device"
         Identifier      "Card0"
         Driver          "intel"
         BusID           "0:2:0"

I remember that the xorg.conf of the booted system had the BusID set to 
0:2:0. The only difference was that the Driver "intel" was not there.
