There are new drivers for the 22300SLP for example (though one person  
replied to me privately and said they crash all the time).  However,  
what they claim as support is not really support.  There is no  
updated driver for older 2200s family cards, no updated management  
apps, no management apps for new cards (2230SLP has a driver from  
Adaptec, but no management or reporting app which makes it almost  

When you call Adaptec and tell them you are on FreeBSD, even if the  
issue is in their firmware, they don't want to talk to you (though  
they often still will -- my issue a year or two ago they did work on  
after telling me it wasn't supported)...
