[CDBUG-talk] Asus Eee

Hi all.  I picked up an Asus EeePC 701.  My intention was to put FreeBSD 
on it, but I ran into some issues with networking.  Apparently there is 
a beta driver for the wired NIC, but the wireless NIC is what I was 
really trying to get working.  It's an Atheros card, but apparently the 
version of the chipset is not supported by the ath driver, even in 7.0.

Right now I have it running Ubuntu Linux, until I hear something about 
someone else getting it working under FreeBSD, at which point I will 
probably switch back.

It's a pretty neat machine, and I'll be bringing it to the next meeting, 
if anyone's interested.
