OK, here's the deal.

I have a Mac Mini. It has no PCI slots. It has firewire and USB. I'm told that 
USB cards are tacky and yucky, and have high latency and generally suck. So, 
here I am with FreeBob instead.

I chose the FA-66 because it has been around a long time, and thus is likely to 
be well-supported in Freebob.

Also because, if it doesn't work, on Ebay it is currently fetching almost 
exactly the price I paid for it. :-)

I am poor; I have no choice but to be brave.
