I will be a new FreeBSD user as soon as I receive my DVD. I am
a Linux user for a few yrs now. I have a few concerns, I hope you
can answer me, I don't belong to any mailing lists. I don't think
there are any user groups down here in Puerto Rico.
1- Can you tell me if it has trouble detecting built-in
modems? I have a notebook, an HP nx9020 and it's built-in modem uses
the conexant chipset, My SuSE 9.3 had trouble with that until I got
a 3rd party driver from www.linuxant.com. So, will run into the same
thing with freebsd?
2- I have a HP scanjet 4600 scanner (usb) that doesn't have a linux
driver... either from HP themselves or from the linux community. I
can use it with my old windows desktop , but not with linux. Can
you suggest any possible FreeBSD solution?
3- Will FreeBSD detect my Palm cradle (usb)? I use my PDA alot.
I really like Jpilot as my pda gui app. Do you know of other Jpilot
users that use FreeBSD ?
I think I'm gonna stick with freebsd, so I will appreciate your
answers, or suggestions.
