According to ata(4), the ICH8 chipset is supported. According to ataraid(4) the jmicron is supported. But if it doesn't work, you can always use gmirror(8). > Is the NIC supported and working well?

Again, if it doesn't work get a cheap Realtek 8139 card. > Again, I couldn't find any of its chipsets in the 6.3 supported > HW list, so that's why I ask the list.

Everything seemed to work OK.
