Dual-boot Vidcap(3|4)

I had my weekly meeting with Ketan this afternoon. Not much to talk about since I haven't done much this past week with everything else that's been going on. But an interesting idea came up while we were talking about measuring quality with different frame rates. Originally I was wondering whether or not there would be a problem dumping 30fps to disk. But Ketan started wondering how things would look if we dumped frames at varying frame rates, and how that would affect the quality.

Anyway, I have to start setting up the test environment for video capture in the DiRT lab. We've got two machines Vidcap3 and Vidcap4 attached to cameras in Sitterson 155. I'm going to install Windows and FreeBSD on these as dual-boot systems. We need the FreeBSD side for dummynet and the Windows side for both the VQM Software and because David Stotts wants to run some experiments and right now it looks like he needs Windows for them.
