Anyone run FreeBSD on such a beast?

I have tried an i8000, and i8200 and they both work fine, but I haven't tried 
an i8500 and I (work :) is thinking of purchasing one to dual boot, so I'd be 
interested in success/failure reports.

As a side note I have tried 4.6 and 5.0-Rel on an i2500 with no luck. Seems to 
hang before/during probing a device and it isn't possible to break into the 
debugger :(
