FreeBSD 4.X and Intel E7520 chipset problems

Have you tried running the application on 5.X? It's been my experience that
even though it says 'made for 4.X', it'll run perfectly well on 5.X.

Subject: FreeBSD 4.X and Intel E7520 chipset problems

Recently we have purchased a Supermicro X6DHR-IG2 motherboard based on Intel
E7520 chipset with 2x3.0GHz Xeons and are unable to install FreeBSD 4.X on
It seems that FreeBSD 4.X is not recognizing the chipset and therefore it's
unable to recognize Mylex AcceleRAID 160 controller.

Everything is working fine on FreeBSD 5.X, but unfortunately the application
we need to run on top of that is made specifically for FreeBSD 4.X.

Is there any chance that Intel E7520 chipset will be supported on some
future 4.X releases or is there some kind of patch/workaround ?
