Thanks, I'll try. I knew of that program, but with time I forgot it's name.

I must say that freebsd works very well as a workstation, there are no
viruses (am I right?), it's very stable, extendable and with good support
(thanks guys). On the other side, there are a lot of things one should
learn, but I already managed to lear a lot of things, and, also, the
handbook is genius, it's just great and one can understand everything.

But, let me ask something. When I was configuring the mounting of usb memory
sticks, I had to create the /etc/devfs.rules file and write something in it.
and I did it. Everything works fine, but is it ok to create files like this
if they are not already created by the system. I just followed the hanbook,
but the only difference was that I had to create that file.
