There's also a mailinglist bsdi-users @
com which is also helpful.

Only BSDi. In names: Mike Karels, Polk, Torek, Borman and many other names
known from the old CSRG at Berkeley and other main unix vendors.

I have never seen a better support hotline and a more stable system...
This includes all the Unix workstations i worked with.
