The Dell's are great with FreeBSD, but pay attention if it has one of
those Dell DRAC controllers for remote management that it will appear to
FreeBSD as an usb keyboard + mouse and therefore take precedence over an
ps/2 keyboard or an usb keyboard which will be handled as an extra
keyboard. Therefore, before you reboot after installation from the shell
prompt make sure you add keyboard=/dev/kbd0 to your rc.conf _before_

Good luck with your project
