	Yes, I am. The BIOS is the latest -RU revision (if I remembered
correctly) with custom patch (original HPT366 part of BIOS replaced by
version 1.28-beta) - but I think this patch has no effecto to FreeBSD.

	No ACPI is enabled in BIOS configuration, KERNEL is custom.

	The -current environment isn't used for any work, just for periodic
cvsup && makeworld installworld

	The SMP kernels are unable to run several weeks due a problem with
Giant lock, but it is working now. The only current -current's problem
known to me is that linc is broken when compilled with -O3 as some
pthread stubs functions is optimized-out from resulting library (e.g.
you can't sucessfully link other programs, also dynamically linked
binaries doesn't load and run due unresolved symbols).

	My BP6 did it with no problem.
