FreeBSD We've all heard the age old argument second only to the vi vs. emacs religious wars: FreeBSD Vs Linux. As a long time linux user, I decided that is was time I spent some time on the other side of the fence to see if it was any greener. Oh, and by the way, vi rules.

Every time I look for "sis900 freebsd" on Google, it comes up with people experiencing errors such as "MII without PHY!" Debian Stable works just fine

This typically indicates that the kernel is unable to communicate with the physical controller (PHY) through the MII bus, which is either indicative of a damaged physical controller or buggy firmware. I'd suggest you try buying some better hardware...
