I have several of these machines and i have tried installing Freebsd 6 - 
Freebsd 7 beta2 . The general breakdown is as follows. On freebsd 6 PATA 
mode works, SATA mode is broken. On freebsd 7 both PATA and SATA mode is 
broken. You can not even do a fresh install of 7 beta2. (I have only 
been able to use these machines disklessly)
