any particular reason why youre note going with 6.2? i have 6.2 running on several DL G4's and G5's (couple ML's in there too), and they all have no trouble with the broadcom nics. also, both my laptop and desktop have the broadcoms as well, and again, they work very nicely... in 6.2. but to field your question more directly, surely Intel has a pcie version of their nics. thats what i would choose if i were pressed to buy something other than what came on the system's board. cheers, -- Jonathan Horne http://dfwlpiki.dfwlp.org [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
