Runs like a charm. Only issues I've had are:
    o USB keyboard doesn't work in ddb, works fine in normal os.
    o Detection order of boot devices changed when I added a fibre 
channel card.

Appart from that it runs great, all 4 nics recognised, mpt works 
with/out raid.
Infact I hope to have it be an official FreeBSD mirror server in the not 
too distant future.
