Is HostRAID supported under FreeBSD???

Yes, it is supported, however the RAID portion is not. I'm still
waiting on Soren and crew to get metadata support for the RAID portion
of the ICH5-R -- this RAID controller is purely software-based, it is
not a hardware RAID solution.
In English: the controller will work fine as a standalone SATA
controller, with the RAID option disabled. We have a couple SuperMicro
5013C-T servers which do this. You can use FreeBSD software RAID
(ataraid, ccd, or vinum) to accomplish goals instead.
If Soren needs hardware to play with, I can gladly send him a
P4-based motherboard. RAM and CPU will be his own problem though... :)
