A company bought 3 of these and had issue installing FreeBSD on them
(I'm currently off site) saying it hung very early in the boot process 
from CD for 6.2 amd64 and the monitor went blank.  Can anyone here 
comment on their experiences with this ?

I've included some links below too.

Seems to validate the video card an ATI ES1000 16MB is okay.
seems to say it works in general.

Thanks in advance.

Work like you don't need the money,
love like you'll never get hurt,
