FreeBSD has a special list for this topic:
	http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-emulation
PS main issue might be USB support within emulators from what I've read.

ALL,
Note FreeBSD has Lots of lists:   http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo
Questions@ is/was for general simple beginners questions IMO, some
traffic here belongs on other more advanced lists.  Decide yourself,
browse the list above, click a few & read list remits.

Cheers,
Julian
