can anyone speak to successes with using the newed Supermicro server
boards with FreeBSD? i was looking at things like this:

On-Board Devices

     * Intel® 5100 (San Clemente) chipset
     * Intel® ICH9R + PXH-V


     * Intel ICH9R SB SATAII Controller
     * RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 support (Windows only)
     * RAID 0, 1, 10 support (Linux)

Does FreeBSD support that SATA controller for various RAID setups?

Does anyone have any suggestions for a vendor that provides barebones
servers (tower models) with hot swap SATA drives included?
