I have not been able to get my joystick working in FreeBSD.  I have
skimmed the Handbook and searched the archives of this mailing list to no

My joystick is an InterAct ProPad 6--it's a simple analog joystick that
plugs into the gameport of the sound card.  My sound card is an SB Live!.

What do I need to do to get it working? TIA
