It should work just fine. It is also known as "Intel PRO/1000GT Desktop Adapter" and uses the 82541PI controller chip which should be mentioned in the hardware notes for em(4). I have one of those cards and have had no problems with it. I bought it in June 2006, only a month or so after FreeBSD 6.1 was released so I expect it was supported in 6.1-RELEASE as well. It works fine, uses the em(4) driver, and no gotchas that I have found. -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
