Hmmm I was impressed at the fact that it runs on my ghetto hardware,
I mean my motherboard sells for $49 CDN (ECS k7 pro) so the Linuxes had
serious problems with it. I tried both FreeBSD 4.7 and 5.1 and both worked.
I have not had any hardware problems... my mouse and keyboard are USB as
well and had no issues. X was a little wierd to configure the mouse in, but
that was it.
