Hello, The first thing I want to make clear is DON'T FEED THE TROLL, yes 
I'm talking about you TM* I mean freebsd* I know that this 
questions has been asked many times here but it has never been fully 
answered because TM always hi-jacks the thread, ignore him!

What I would like to know is if the Intel E7210 (CanterWood ES) north 
bridge and the Intel 6300ESB south bridge (PCI-X, USB2, and SATA) are 
supported by FreeBSD. This chipset combo is used for entry level Pentium 
4 (uni-processor) servers that have a PCI-X interface. Will FreeBSD 5.3 
boot and run, even if sub-optimal, on these boards?

Also can anyone comment on these too?, All of these chipsets are used 
for entry level P4 servers with PCI-X, North Bridge / South Bridge:

Serverworks GC-SL / ServerWorks CSB6
Intel 875P / Intel 6300ESB

LGA775s) Pentium 4 + PCI-X) I have done all the hard work for you, here
