However, your card is not a FlashPoint and does not require special
support.  I have a BT948 and it works as well.  But the BT930 and others
do not work without special support.

The BT930 and other FlashPoint cards are fantastic cards.  I hope people
don't avoid them because of the Debian support issue.  I also hope that
Debian 2.0.32 disks are made that correct this oversight.



Please reply to me using planetfall.com (jeff@).
On the side of the software box, in the "System Requirements" section,
it said "Requires Windows 95 or better."  So I installed Linux.
