      No real problem per se, simply that the drivers weren't included with
      Fedora and I had to dig around a bit to find them.

      Spike (watching, from a distance, a conversation between
      Angel and a woman he just rescued):How can I thank you, you
      mysterious black-clad-hunk-of-a-knight-thing?
      No need little lady. Your tears of gratitude are enough for me. You
      see, I was once a bad-ass vampire. But love, and a pesky curse,
      defanged me. And now, I'm just a *big* fluffy puppy with bad teeth.
      No! Not the hair! Never the hair.
      But there must be some way I can show my appreciation.
      No, helping those in need's my job. And working up a load of sexual
      tension and prancing away like a magnificent poof is truly thanks
      I understand. I have a nephew who's gay, so...
      Say no more. Evil's still afoot. And I'm almost out of that Nancy-boy
      hair gel I like so much. Quickly! To the Angel-mobile! Away!
