Hi. I got the docs from the FTP site and still have a question. 

I need to make absolutely sure that FreeBSD works with Boca 6-port i/o cards.
One document mentions all Boca cards except for the 6 port, and the other
mentions only the 6 port and not the others. Can you tell me if FreeBSD does in
fact support the 6 port card from Boca, is it easy to configure, and will it
work in conjunction with a regular comport thus giving me 7 i/o ports on a
single pc?


    I want to put FreeBSD to work between my BBS and the internet:

                nullmodem                       28.8k slip
   BBS/Boca-16 =========== Boca-6/FreeBSD/Com2 ------------ Provider
       ~~~~~~~             ~~~~~~         ~~~~

                           Is this possible?



>From the freebsd.asc file

 | 4.4.  What multi-port serial cards are supported by FreeBSD?
 |
 | o  BOCA 4/8/16 port cards inshared IRQ mode,


>From the relnotes.txt

 | 2.3. Misc
 | ---------
 |
 | BOCA ATIO66 6 port serial card using shared IRQ.

The "2.3 Misc" list doesn't indicate if it's an inclusion or exclusion list.

Thanks for any help. Happy holidays.
