we are happily running FreeBSD 5.4/5-STABLE on a D915GEV intel board..

atapci1: <Intel ICH6 SATA150 controller> 
    port 0xd800-0xd80f,0xdc00-0xdc03,0xe000-0xe007,0xe400-0xe403,0xe800-0xe807

atapci1 at pci0:31:2:
    class=0x01018f card=0x45568086 chip=0x26518086 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Intel Corporation'
    device   = '82801FB/FW ICH6/ICH6W SATA Controller'
    class    = mass storage
    subclass = ATA

As this is a backup server, it slurps up to 400GB each night
(with 500 MBit/s peak) via an em0 1000baseTX
(the on-board Marvell chip is unfortunately not recognized yet).
