This is reposted from comp.os.386bsd.questions because I'm so desperate:

I've run into two vexing problems with my hardware. Can someone suggest fixes?

I have a Colorado Memory Systems Jumbo 250 tape drive (the kind that
attaches to the floppy cable). NetBSD apparently cannot see the device
with the stock device drivers (wt0 and st0). Am I totally SOL? Has
anyone seen a device driver that would do the trick? The manufacturer
couldn't help me.

I have a DFI WG6000VL video card. It's a Vesa Local Bus device with the
WD90C33 chipset. After hours of mucking around with XFree86, I have
come to the conclusion that the DFI card has a programmable dot clock
generator. So, I think I need a clock programmer program. The manufacturer
couldn't help me. Again, am I totally SOL? Does anyone else use such a card?
