HP servers usually have NICs with broadcom or intel chipsets which are 
as bge and em under freebsd and work great.

We have the following configurations and they work fine:

- freebsd 6.3 on dl320G5 with on-board broadcom network chipset and SATA 
HDDs. We had
  problems with hardware RAID and used geom to impl. RAID functionality.

- freebsd 6.3 on dl380G5 with SAS HDDs. Hardware RAID controller is 
recognized by 6.3
  and works.
