There are reports it boots on NetBSD and OpenBSD.  I'm awaiting an  
appointment at the local Sun "lab" to test it out with FreeBSD.

By the looks of the dmesg output from Net/Open BSD it *should* work  
with FreeBSD although one of the ethernet interfaces is nvidia which  
may not be 100% optimal/stable.  I'm planning to plug in an extra  
intel NIC to make up for that since I need 2 NICs.
