I started trying to make it work right on FreeBSD, but never
finished... Here
<> is what I
believe was my last try. IIRC it worked, but channel numbers were "off
by one". To get the right i2c adress I simply changed the probing
order. I haven't really used the card for some time, so I didn't
really tried it on FreeBSD 5.

Hope it helps.
