(And to think that for years I was SCSI-*only*. Darn!)
What is "aptapicam" exactly? If I add it to my kernel GENERIC
will other things blow up, [:-)]?
I've been going to<->fro with this whole tthing... BSD is
basically a hard-core geek operating system. for servers, like my
DNS server; it doen't make the best "desktop" OS. ...Still,
it'd be nice to be able to burn the few CD's that I *do* copy on
tao. Now, am i lazy or am i Lazy?
