	That's too bad...  It might solve my problem :)

	I could try that only problem is that I had to migrate to -current to get my wireless nic card working.  I may give it a try just to see if I can get my sound card working though...

	I have searched for a program that can change settings in the BIOS.  The only thing I've found is Toshiba's Hardware Setting Program,  but all it basically lets you do is change your bootup order.  I'll keep looking though...
