Are you going to include support of that chips to your next releases, and if yes, when? Or maybe i can find that drivers somewhere else?

Hi, Igor.

FreeBSD works well with nForce 570. It supports AMD SB600 too, but if you BIOS dosn't 
have an AHCI option, then it will work only with UDMA33 speed. But workaround for this
problem was commited to CURRENT last week. So, i think it will be in STABLE soon.

Note: seems that there are some problems with nForce chipsets and FreeBSD 6.3/7.0 on 
MSI motherboards. So, be careful.
