Thanks, that sounds nicer. I wonder if there would be something like
a "HW buyers guide for the FreeBSD AMD64" around somewhere as that
would help people that switch frim AMD32. Still I have to be content
with the one I have at home, but hope that the problems will be
solved soon. Again I will take your advice and talk to the customer
and let them know.
