Hi Didier,
That's good to hear, if it's running a BSD with X & pcmcia ether
I'd be grateful for your config files please (X11 in particular,
but If you have a custom kernel config too for eg sound or whatever
that too please)

This laptop belongs to a friend ( CC'd), it hasn't been
high priority so I haven't perservered that much, but I'd love to
get config files from you, install mine & return the laptop to
friend (& get space back on my desk :-)
Thanks !
