Hello all,

OK, I did not get any feedback on my previous post about this topic.
Doesn't anyone know if FreeBSD supports this hardware, or ?

I know now for a fact that the Marvell NIC is NOT supported, but what
about the rest of the hardware, like the RAID controller, etc?

Must I maybe post more information about this board? I mean, it's like an
entry level Intel server board, I just want to hear from somebody that is
using it that it actually works with FreeBSD (well, excluding the second
NIC of course. ;))

Anyone? Even if it is just "Do not buy that, it will not work."

Thank you in advance.
