	I'm considering buying NetBSD.  Before I commit, I've one
concern that needs silenced.  Does NetBSD support the Actiontec PCI
	This modem has given very reliable service under several versions
of a custom built Linux system, and under OpenBSD.  However, about
two years ago when I was considering FreeBSD, I could not get it 
configured, and, sad to say, the folks on FreeBSD could never stop
jumping the gun long enough to reply what steps would be needed
to configure it (the Winmodem gun, even when you tell them it
isn't a Winmodem, they don't listen.  Strange folks, some of them
even claim that all PCI modems Winmodems.)
	Hopefully the answer is yes and I can purchase a CD set and
try NetBSD.
