I still keep http://people.freebsd.org/~lofi/envy24.tar.gz (unfinished, 
non-working driver, not by me) and http://people.freebsd.org/~lofi/envy24.pdf 
around, in case someone wants to take that driver and finish it. In it's 
current form, it doesn't even compile, but the fixes to make it compile are 
rather trivial. The fixes necessary to make it *work* however are not and way 
over my head.
