Supported Hardware

Hi all,

Apologies for the cross posting.

I have just received a box with the an Intel SE7210TP1 motherboard, and was 
wondering if anyone has been able to get FreeBSD running on it? I could'nt 
find it in the supported list of hardware, but though I would give it a go 
anyway. I have installed 5.2.1 but have run in to problems with the 
networking. There are two built in network cards an Intel PRO/100+ 82551QM, 
and an Intel PRO/1000 82547EI. Both seem to be detected, and I can set up 
the network parameters, but neither seem to work. I am able to ping 
internally, but nothing leaves the box.

This is my first attempt at installing FreeBSD, so hopefully there's 
something I have missed, or is my hardware not yet supported? Any suggestions?

Best reagrds,
