	I've been trying to get it working with Freebsd (to be upgraded
to netbsd 1.0 whenn it's out), but am unsuccessful.  I set up an NFS export on
a local machine here and booted linux off of a distribution's boot floppies and
tried to get it working with an NFS mounted XFree 2.1.1, and it worked fine.
I guess there's some problem with these cards and *BSD.  *sigh*  I really
wanted to use the card.
