We use the 965 based boards for many of our servers and they work fine - 
the only gotchas I have come across has been the onboard IDE controller 
is a Marvell ATA controller, and not supported by the drivers in 
6.2-RELEASE. I made a back-port of the -CURRENT driver to 6.2 some 
months ago and have not had any problems (although the CD-ROM connected 
to said IDE channel is only used for the installation process!).

I would imagine that the driver is likely present in 6-STABLE and the 
upcoming 6.3 release later this year.
