with this one I haven't had any success either and it doesen't show
when booting or dmesg.

well it works here but only with UDMA33:

ad6: 76350MB <SAMSUNG SP0812C/SU100-27> [155124/16/63] at ata3-master

I had some trouble when booting for the installation as it hung on
the DVD drive and burner, but when you switch off ACPI then it worked
and installed nice. Now it has it incorporated:
FreeBSD 5.3-BETA7 #10: Thu Oct  7 08:35:06 CEST 2004

and works, also I had problems with the lpt port and that is solved
too. I can send you my "dmesg" if you like.

The MB is a Gigabyte GA-K8NS and also had three (3) updates of the
BIOS as well, taken form the Gigabyte Website.
