my FreeBSD OS, cause I'm a person who likes use just one OS with all

patch, cause Native-IDE burning doesn't support my burner in Audio mode.
And now I'm gonna get (in a few hours) an ATI Radeon 7500 64Mb DDR.

 me that he had used an ATI 7500 Radeon with his FreeBSD and he could

And what must I do at this point ?? Can you help me, please ??
