Yeah. I just played with it on the Windows ME box - it acts like a scanner,=
a camera, just, I suppose, a scanner that gives multiple images at once. An=
d the
resolution on this model is *crap* even in hi-res mode (I think it's < 0.5
megapixel :P)

So, I think I'm going to save myself the effort of writing a driver for it,=
buy at some point a real digital camera.

Any recommendations for cameras with decent res known to work in NetBSD?
