thanks all for replies, but for the base system stuff i was trying to figure
out things ike what's under
/usr/src/sys/dev/ for instance, and say under dev/sound there is usb, pcm,
If i man usb i am guessing that only refers to main usb stuff. i got the
impression though that everything under sys/dev/ is likely kernel modules
and man sound was more appropriate, but no info there.

with the linux app, i have an SSE capable  CPU and linproc mounted , even
SSE2 i'm sure, and have  been running  some linux  apps no problem ,
including  ut2004-demo  from ports and even the full linux version if that
is relevant.

the app is not in ports, i just downloaded the installer and edited the
install script to go from /usr/local/bin to /compat/linux/usr/bin. I thought
at this point it was either not finding some libs or something similar but
have no clue as to what.

is there any hope for this to work? and should i be using the rpm installer
? rpm make any difference ?
