Logistically, that can become a nightmare. If you are employing cables,
then that doubles, or triples or more the number of cables you need.
Also, you need to increase the space needed to accommodate these
multiple devices.

I have a printer/scanner/FAX/copier all in one and love the fact that I
don't have devices all over my office.

The problem here is that you are being forced to "dumb down" your
system to accommodate FreeBSD's inability to support multi-function
devices. That is like enabling a drunk. I refuse to follow that path.

Just my of 2 cents.
