I have quite a few machines with the Adaptec cards, and while I hate them 
and the management tools, I don't have much choice but to use them until 
we retire the hardware.

Does anyone have any info on whether adaptec is planning on updating these 
tools to work with FreeBSD 6+?  Or have they basically abandoned support 
for FreeBSD?  Knowing that info would help me plan our 4.11 to 6.x
