I think I have exactly the same MoBo. ASRock AOD790GX. I am running FreeBSD
8.0 RC1 amd64 and everything is working fine here. I use it as my desktop.
I've got it dual booting with XP because I need it for my Audio projects. I
have an extra PCI sound card on it because of its MIDI port. In fact I use it
as my main sound output on FreeBSD. I also have another sound card but FreeBSD
doesnt have drivers for It but I only use it in XP anyway.
FreeBSD since version 2.2.8 [not Pro-Audio.... YET!!] (99,7% winedows FREE)
