Yes, and I guess that's the fun with Linux. These days, Linux seems to
support everything out of the box. It was a lot more fun when you had
to work real hard to make your devices work with Linux. I don't mind

FreeBSD on one of my boxes. But seems this is another kettle of fish
... still having fun.
