FreeBSD and VIA K8M800 chipset

I just got a new computer with a ECS KDM800-M2 motherboard. Does anyone 
know of any problem with this chipset/motherboard? 

I've tried installing 6.0/i386 and 5.4/i386 on it with no luck. 6.0 failed 
installing from the CD with sh segfaulting in pkg_add, and then panics on 
startup when trying to mount /.

5.4 installed fine, but various things (dmesg, more, reboot) either segfault or 
bus error.

I suspect that it's got a bad stick of RAM, but I'd just like to make sure there's 
no known problems with this MB.
