 	Anyone out there got some practical experience using a USB wi-fi 
stick? Are there any that support USB 2.0 and 802.11a or 802.11g ? Also, 
is booting netbsd off a USB stick just a matter of putting a the 
bootloader or GRUB on there and setting it up with a normal FFS 
filesystem? Any support for so-called USB 'webcams' in netbsd? I know the 
old quickcams work with parallel ports. However, are there any that work 
on USB and have some supporting tools which work with netbsd (ie.. at 
least enough to grab a frame)? In my defense I did browse around in 
sys/dev/usb/usbdevs but I know that just because the USB ID is there 
doesn't mean there is any real support for it. I'm just looking for 
anecdotal "yeah this device works for me" kind of things. It's Christmas 
time, and I need a list to give out ya'know?
