Unless you manage to buy a motherboard that has serious problems (
like those with Nforce3 150 chipset )
you should be able to run the GENERIC i386 kernel on the new
system and then customise for any
additional bits. I am running the MSI K8T Neo2 FIR ( Via
K8T800-Pro chipset ) with FreeBSD 5.4 i386.
