The posts you saw were maybe mine: I have one such system: 6-STABLE on
LS21, Opteron. You need to run at least FreeBSD 6.3 to support the
network controller and possibly the QLogic FC controller. The only
serious issue might be umass (compile it out from the kernel once you
install the system, otherwise the boot process will wait a long time). I
still didn't try 7.0-RELEASE on it so it might not work. Otherwise, the
machine is working and is very solid - no problems at all once the
installation and configuration is done.
