In order to get one on the first day, I had to take a standard
config. So, I don't have bluetooth or airport extreme on this
Mac-mini. I have no idea what FreeBSD might do with those.

Oh, and since I only have one partition for *everything* in
FreeBSD, I turned on softupdates for the '/' partition. I don't
know if anyone else has been running softupdates on PPC...
(I would like it for doing dump/restore copies, if nothing else)
