Has anyone installed FreeBSD using this board?

 	Gigabyte 8S648FX -RZ ATX SiS648FX P4 Motherboard.

SiS 648FX chipset
Processor: Socket 478 for Intel® Pentium® 4 processor
North-bridge: SiS648FX
South-bridge: SiS963L MuTIOL® Media I/O
CMedia 9761A Codec chip
ICS1883 LAN chip

Any hardware incompatibilities I should know of?  Should I avoid it like the 
plague? Or is it a nice, reliable, stable board?

I don't see much mention in the hardware compatibility list for SiS chipsets.  
is there somewhere else I can look to find "recommended" motherboards?

I'm intending putting an Intel P4 3.2GHz CPU in and DDR400 ram.

It'd be nice if all the onboard stuff would play nicely with FreeBSD
