Yeah...and he mentions it in his email. Did you read it? The driver you need (mfi) was never backported to 5.x It was introduced in FBSD 6.1-R You might ask the author (Scott Long) how much work it would be or why it was never backported. It's possible it's trivial and it's possible that it would require massive amounts of work. -- Thanks, Josh Paetzel PGP: 8A48 EF36 5E9F 4EDA 5A8C 11B4 26F9 01F1 27AF AECB
