Thanks, I'll try. I knew of that program, but with time I forgot it's name.

I must say that freebsd works very well as a workstation, there are no viruses (am I right?), it's very stable, extendable and with good support (thanks guys). On the other side, there are a lot of things one should learn, but I already managed to lear a lot of things, and, also, the handbook is genius, it's just great and one can understand everything. But, let me ask something. When I was configuring the mounting of usb memory sticks, I had to create the /etc/devfs.rules file and write something in it. (http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/usb-disks.html) and I did it. Everything works fine, but is it ok to create files like this if they are not already created by the system. I just followed the hanbook, but the only difference was that I had to create that file.
