10/2    Looking for pointers to linux/BSD-happy hardware.  Don't delete this.
        \_ As for high end video cards, good luck.  I believe the Voodoo
           cards and some nvidia have some support for linux but you'll
           be working very hard to get Mesa, GLX, and XFree to work properly
           together.  Stay away from Windmodems and Soho ethernet cards.
           \_ Not to mention the area of Mexico that was hit was more flat
              currently.  mr. id software is pushing it hard himself.
              g200 runs quake at >25fps, and handles some real texture-happy
              and less densely populated.
           \_ matrox g200 and g400 are best supported by linux w/ GLX
        \_ http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/install.html#INSTALL-HW
           Anything in particular? Sound Cards? scsi, motherboards? video? ..

           \_ Any linux equivalent of this useful list?
              \_ http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Hardware-HOWTO.html
              opengl programs ok (better than an o2... g400 should match
              an octane).
           \_ nVidia TNT based cards are well supported as well. --Jon
