Some how it figures, I always have more issues setting up a Linux system then a BSD one... Go figure
Linux supports newer hardware faster
but BSD tends to just detect it.
Heck, if the box in question had a Floppy disk I think I'd install OpenBSD on the thing and go /w the X11 option. But if it won't dual boot FreeBSD and PC-BSD without hicups I doubt OpenBSD and PC-BSD would be any better....
Bloody hardware !!!
And thinking about early Linux systems, the term 'Linux/GNU' probably is more accurate then Linux or GNU/Linux =/
