Well, the chip and NIC are supported by FreeBSD 5.x; I'm not sure
about the Zip drive, but USB support is there. You can certainly
dual-boot FreeBSD and Windows XP, and read access to the NTFS
partition. It sounds definitely doable;) Good luck, and welcome to
Intuition, however illogical, is recognized as a command prerogative.
