Hello list,

First off, the environment:

Intel P4 3GH with HTT enabled
Mainboard ASUS NRL-L533
North Bridge: ServerWorks CMIC-SL
South Bridge: ServerWorks CSB6

I checked google and the mailing list archive but couldn't find helpful (for me) information on this.

A client brought us a server to install FreeBSD 4.9 on it, but the chipset isn't recognized by the system. I had to disable DMA in the BIOS to get FreeBSD booting off the IDE-HDD. I then read the Hardware Release notes (I know, it's too late):

FreeBSD 4.9: ServerWorks CSB5 ATA66/ATA100
FreeBSD 5.2: ServerWorks CSB5 and CSB6 ATA66/ATA10

According to this, it is the only way to install 5.2? Would 4.9-stable recognize the chipset? Is that lack fundamental to the whole system or would it suffice to just buy a new IDE-Controller?

I was so happy to have our client conviced of FreeBSD, that it would be a pity, if that faild now.

Thanks very much in advance, Benjamin
