Yes, I think so.  The access to the machine goes via the tunnel
driver, and that would need to be completed for Linux.  The authors
don't use Linux, so they haven't done the work.  They don't use BSD/OS
much any more, so if you are going to install one, FreeBSD is the
obvious choice, especially considering the price differential.

Of course, any old UNIX user should be using BSD anyway, especially if
you want to emulate older BSDs :-)
