Any more info you found out about this?  I'm about to order one of  
these to test unless I find out otherwise it doesn't work.

My only concern is that one of the ethernets is bge and the other is  
nve which is not known to be that stable, and I need both ports...  I  
suspect it will be ok, though.  If push comes to shove I guess  
installing an intel NIC card would not be out of the question.

The rest of the hardware seems to be supported based on chipsets I  
looked up from kernel boot messages from linux, openbsd, and netbsd  
posted on the web.  curiously i never found a boot message from  
anyone running freebsd...
