That board should work perfectly fine on FreeBSD 7-CURRENT (or 7-RELEASE 
when that becomes available), and for all intensive purposes should work 
with 6-RELEASE; you'll want to update to the latest version of 6 though 
because there were some driver releases that came out which allow you to 
use Marvell NICs (msk driver), for instance.

I have a comparable board from ASUS (P5K-E) and it worked fine with 6.x 
(6.1-rc1, 6.2 latest), and works nicely with 7-CURRENT (sources sup'ed 
from Sept 27th). So unless Abit does something funky with the devices 
onboard, things should work perfectly fine (not sure about onboard 
graphics though since I have an nvidia card :)...).
