I just want to remind you that there are other drivers which depend on another device to work. At this time, I can think of: cardbus & friends, SCSI/CAM, USB, ongoing work on IEEE1394 ACPI, and PCM(not that installing requires PCM) Cheers, Michael To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
