UPS just delivered by controller :)
I will install it and reinstall freebsd this evening.
I want to start with a clean 5.2.1 install. But does it already support this controller? I mean is twa included in 5.2.1?
if not, what is the best way to install freebsd with that controller?
I don't want to start with a CURRENT-snapshop, i made bad expierences with that.
Updating a clean 5.2.1 is my preferred way...

Any ideas?
