The problem is there's more models of the DL385 and the DL360
than you can shake a stick at. While someone here may be running a
DL385 it's a crapshoot if it is the same model of DL385 as you
I doubt your going to get FreeBSD
to run on a SATA-equipped DL385. But, the scsi controller in the
DL360 and the DL385 are supported by the same FreeBSD device driver.

This, by the way, is what VARs are for. Instead of trying to
save a miserable hundred bucks by buying the server off the
website, find a local Compaq/HP reseller and go through them,
and get them to guarentee FreeBSD will run on the thing to get
