Hello Sean,
I recently asked the same question at and the 
answer I received is that the board is supported.
have a look at the product brief for the mother board   it says the 
the I/O controller hub is an ICH8
and the FreeBSD 6.2 release notes for the ata(4) driver 

I am still learning myself how to understand the release notes.
