The GERNIC kernel doesn't detect any soundcart. You have to build you own version that does. You can read how to do this in the FreeBSD handbook (www.freebsd.org/handbook). Its to book to read if you have a problem with something. About hardware support: not all hardware is supported. If you ethernet card doesn't work and you didn't cut any out of the kernel, then its proberbly not gonna work. www.freebsd.org has a link on the top rigth that tell you what hardware is and what is not supported. > Thus, I am asking you, whether there have been new > switches on version 5.1 , referring to its kernel.

No body have told you that FreeBSD support all the availeble hardware. I'm sorry that you see it like this, but it far from the truth. -- Alex P.S. Please CC me.
