Aloha Gurus....

SOLVED;
HP Mini xorg. with XFCE 3.

If you set hald_enable="YES" and dbus_enable="YES"
in /etc/rc.conf it finds and sets the correct settings and the mouse 
works. Hal is improving nicely. Thanks.

I discovered that in the HP Mini netbook FreeBSD 7.2 unfortunately does 
not recognize the Nic's either hard wired or Wlan. Anone know how to 
find what nics are in this HP MIni? There are no instructions about this 
with the unit. And I have had no help on the HP Forums.

Any body know how I can detect these chips under FreeBSD 7.2.

Thanks
