Official word from Adaptec is that FreeBSD is no longer a supported

That's really really bad news. Oddly, ICP Vortex Germany told me
the opposite wr/t to their new line of cards. They said, they
were working on full FreeBSD support.

Great, that definitely wasn't the feel that I got from them ... I've been using Adaptec products since early 90's, mainly because they have always been the 'tried-n-true' product ...

As I mentioned to someone else, I'm willing to endure having the server hang up a few times in order to debug the problem, and fix the driver, but any correspondance that I actually got answers back on gave me the feel that I was on my own ... my previous email to this was meant to warn others to think twice, especially with newer FreeBSD boxes, about going with anything that runs on the iir(4) driver ...
