ICP Vortex will not provide capacity to update their own driver for FreeBSD 6. The new products will feature full FreeBSD support, eventually. (couple of weeks, he said) Technically, the ICP guy was quite confident, that ICP's own driver for FreeBSD 4.x and 5.x didn't show the problems we have on FreeBSD 6 with the FreeBSD iir driver. He recommended using ICP's driver source as a reference when trying to fix the FreeBSD 6 driver. I'm not a kernel developer so I cannot really comment on this. HTH, Patrick M.
