I'e got the same general questions as Will Yardley, except that I'd like more on the card reader. I've never used my USB ports--anywhere. If I go down to CompUSA and ask the clerk for a compact-flash card reader, will t come with the cabling? Does the card fit into the m'board? (700MHz Intel-i815, circa 2001). I'm not worried about the software end of things; only the hardware interface. thanks, gary PS: FWIW, we're looking at the Fuji 3800. It has a USB cable; not sure how everything fits together... . -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public service Unix _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
