I have a NEC chipset USB card that I never tried yet.
Mostly, as I haven't done anything with adding devices under BSD
before :) although I don't think it's too hard, I just have had no
real need for a USB device yet. It would be handy for backups of /
home on occasion though.
I am running 3.0 -current from the prepared July 2005 install CD; but
I can drop a newer kernel in if need be (do I need to? I mean, I have
not grabbed the src for 3.0, is the available kernel src the one I
need or should I wait a bit- or use the kernel binary just posted).
if someone can give me a brief primer on what to do I will drop the
card in this weekend and see what happens.
I can test it with a handful of USB storage devices or external
drives. Does this really need done, are most people working happily
with USB at this time?
