I've been looking for an answer for the nForce2 chipset for months in
various arenas, including on this list and on -net. Nobody seems to
have an answer; in fact, one person's reply on this list was "good
luck". The drivers to which Andrew refers above are for Linux, not
UNIX/BSD, and Linux emulation does not seem to do the trick. You may
be able to get away with something on enabling some peripheral drivers
such as audio, but enabling the on-board NIC, which has been my main
concern, does not seem likely unless someone at nVidia works with a BSD
developer to port over the proper drivers.
I'd greatly welcome some updated information on these drivers as well,
if any is available.
