Sorry, I accidentally sent the last response directly to you and not the mailing list, putting this back on the mailing list.
That was my answer, in rough, I don't know, however you can go to the board manufacturers website ( http://www.supermicro.com/ ), and determine the relevant chipsets through their documentation on the board (the main description pages), and then look at the driver page for more details on the IDE/SATA/Network/etc. chipsets. With these, you can then look at the hardware compatability list ( http://www.freebsd.org/releases/6.0R/hardware-i386.html ) if you are looking for a 64 bit x86 CPU, replace i386 with amd64 in the URL. doing some of the footwork for you, on the X6DH8-G2+ board, I found the following on the front page of supermicro's website, *important things are surrounded by asterisks* 2. *Intel(r) E7520* (Lindenhurst) Chipset 4. *Intel(r) 82546GB* Dual-port Gigabit Ethernet Controller 5. *Adaptec AIC-7902* Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI 6. 2x SATA Ports via *ICH5R* Controller SATA Controller Off the top of my head, I'd say "Intel and Adaptec" for everything critical, it should work like a champ, however I cannot gurantee anything. Also, given some past experience with servers at work, I might suggest looking at ASUS and Tyan as well (be wary of the latter, they are very picky with what hardware you use with them). Also, I've heard some good stuff with the dual core Athlon64/Opterons on a nForce4 chipset, so that would be something worth considering; the cpus are more expensive than the multi-core P4s in some cases, but depending on what your tasks are, they may work better. As a general rule of thumb: lots of calculations/computations, go AMD, lots of IO, go Intel. But this is going way beyond the scope of this mailing list, so I should probably leave it be.
