That sounds good, although it is possible that you have to install some 
windows specific driver to get that to work.

In FreeBSD you're might to have to make a quirk for it (most likely the 
no_6_byte quirk in my experiance) unless someone else in FreeBSD land 
already bought one of them.

Either way, I'd keep the recipt in case you can't get it to work.
