I might agree if the discussion didn't warnder into good and bad
switches, which is something that many of us are conconcerned
with. Otherwise, i apologise.

I'll check it out when I'm using evo. My bg was in ckt design,
but that was a Long time back. For those of us who use FreeBSD
at work, the expense of a switch shouldn't be an issue. For me,
I _will_ just buy a second LG switch. Still, be interesting to
see if one of my old computers with FBSD 8.X could run the unit.
Appreciate the tip, Chad.
