IIRC, Ultra 45 differ from other USIIIi-based systems in the RTC chip
used, which is a bit of an odd device and FreeBSD has no driver for
so far due to lack of hardware for testing. Apart from that, FreeBSD
should run on Ultra 45. However, I think even OpenBSD doesn't have
a driver for the XVR-2500.
