Subject: FreeBSD and hardware support requests...
I've been saddled with a Highpoint RocketRAID 133 (IDE RAID) for my 2U
server (only one that would fit apparently). I want to install FreeBSD
5.0 on the machine, but the http://www.highpoint-tech.com/ support
pages only have precompile drivers upto 4.7 and open-source version
I've tried contacting Highpoint by email, but they won't answer. I was
hoping that FreeBSD as a group might be able to press them to release
their FreeBSD versions as open-source too.
Failing that, some directions to the relavent module writing
documentation would help so that I might consider porting the Linux
opern-source to FreeBSD.

According to http://www.freebsd.org/releases/5.0R/hardware-i386.html
HighPoint HPT366 ATA66, HPT370 ATA100, HPT372 ATA133, HPT374 ATA133
Why not use the existing FreeBSD code and save yourself a job? ;) I
the Rocket Raid uses the HPT372 chipset.
