The internal LSI controler in 335, 345's and BladeCenters (and
similars) are not IBM ServeRaid controlleres. The ServeRAID controllers
are supported in FreeBSD 5.1 thru the new ips driver.  Altho it seems
that some of the newer ServeRAID cards actually have LSI chipsets the
driver is now maintained by adaptec iirc.
