I've got a IBM T42 with a fingerprint scanner. They're made by UPEK
(http://www.upek.com), they have a linux driver avaiable (beta though).
It's a closed source binary driver only, but I almost got it working
anyway using some library hacks. I've written down some of my
findings on http://shapeshifter.se/projects/upek/
Since their driver is using libusb it should be quite easy for them
to create a native binary for FreeBSD. I haven't contacted UPEK
about it yet though.
