I’ve recently begun my exploration of the world of FreeBSD. I installed release 7.1 next to Ubuntu on my old laptop and so far I’m having fun. Reminds me of when I first started out with Solaris and RedHad Linux 5.1. Just about everything worked out of the box. Right now I’m trying to get my Linksys WPG54g pcimcia wireless card working. I found a great set of instructions over at TaoSecurity. Now I just need to get it to work with WPA2/AES.
