I use FreeBSD 4.8 on my Dell Inspiron laptop. Everything works including
video, audio, PC card, DVD, firewire, USB, and APM. Perhaps your problem
is not so much the OS but the laptop. It would help to tell us what kind
of laptop you have.

Why I use BSD? Mainly for stability, usability, performance and security
