Well, thanks, but I looked there before I bought the board.
1. I challange you to derive from that page a list of supported PCI SATA
adapters (and I don't mean RAID adapters like from highpoint or 3ware)
2. Even following the link to ata(4), what you get is a list of
supported chips (some pata, some sata, not specifed as to which is
which), NOT a list of supported boards. Within that was a reference
that the Nforce II chipset WAS supported, which is why I bought what I
did. Now you may say, "well, the mfg added to the chipset. Thats not
FreeBSD's problem". Yes and no. The documentation isn't definitive as
to what is supported. If the doc's had said "Nforce II PATA", then I
would have questioned support of SATA before I purchased, but you can't
tell that from the chip list.
