For anyone who is keeping score at home:

After applying patches to kernel-2.6.13 and making it
kernel-2.6.14-rc5-git5, all of the DViCO FusionHDTV 5 Gold errors have
disappeared.  Obviously none of the dvd-kernel or v4l-kerenel trees were
used.  When running make menuconfig after running make oldconfig,  almost
all DVB-CORE devices were auto-selected to compile as modules

The following is now found running dmesg.

modprobe.conf looks like the following.

alias eth0 via-rhine
alias snd-card-0 snd-cmipci
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-cmipci index=0
remove snd-cmipci { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-cmipci
alias char-major-81 cx8800
alias char-major-212-* cx88-dvb
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd

Again this using Fedora Core version 4 (i386).

I still have to get mythTV up and running, or at least use the dvb-apps to
ensure everything works, but this is a much better sign then before.
