BTW, devices not working by default doesn't imply they're not
supported.  I spent considerable time to get sound working at my elder
daughter's laptop (Thinkpad 600E).  Likewise for IrDA.

These are bugs nobody cares enough to fix (ISA cards, archaic IrDA
devices), but they work well with the free drivers in the gNS' kernel
(once configured with the right incantations, of course).  Which means
they are perfectly legitimate from a freedom perspective.
