There are definitely FreeBSD drivers that exist for the graphics cards
(which my motherboard has).

Reading the manual of my board I've found the onboard LAN is a Realtek
8201BL, which I'm hoping does not count as an ``nvnet'' NIC (I'm about
to get check up on this).  As you suggested the audio is not NVIDIA
stuff (Realtek ALC 650), so I'm hoping I can get this going too.

  I'm in the process of writing a letter directly to NVIDIA, which I
plan on posting, praising them for their work on the graphics cards,
while also suggesting they get their asses in gear with the nForce2
support.  I suggest you might also do the same.

  Best wishes.
