下面是FreeBSD 3.0-Release对硬件的支持情况:

FreeBSD currently runs on a wide variety of ISA, VLB, EISA and PCI bus
based PC's, ranging from 386sx to Pentium class machines (though the 386sx
is not recommended).Support for generic IDE or ESDI driveconfigurations,
various SCSI controller, network and serial cards is also provided.

What follows is a list of all peripherals currently known to work
withFreeBSD.Other configurations may also work, we have simply not as
yet received confirmation of this.

1.Disk Controllers
WD1003 (any generic MFM/RLL)
WD1007 (any generic IDE/ESDI)
Adaptec 1535 ISA SCSI controllers
Adaptec 154x series ISA SCSI controllers
Adaptec 174x series EISA SCSI controller in standard and enhanced mode.
Adaptec 274X/284X/2940/3940 (Narrow/Wide/Twin) series ISA/EISA/PCI SCSI
Adaptec AIC7850/AIC7895 on-board SCSI controllers.

Support for the following controllers is rather weak:

Adaptec 1510 series ISA SCSI controllers (not for bootable devices)
Adaptec 152x series ISA SCSI controllers
Adaptec AIC-6260 and AIC-6360 based boards, which includes the AHA-152x
and SoundBlaster SCSI cards.

** Note: You cannot boot from the SoundBlaster cards as they have no
on-board BIOS, such being necessary for mapping the boot device into the
system BIOS I/O vectors.They're perfectly usable for external
tapes,CDROMs, etc, however.The same goes for any other AIC-6x60 based
card without a boot ROM.Some systems DO have a boot ROM, which is
generally indicated by some sort of message when the system is first
powered up or reset, and in such cases you *will* also be able to boot
from them.

Check your system/board documentation for more details.

AdvanSys (Advanced Systems) ABP510/542/5150 ISA and ABP5140/5142 ISA PnP
cards, ABP842/852 VLB cards, and
ABP920/930/930U/930UA/950/960/960U/970/970U PCI cards.

** Note:The ADP510/5140/5150 boards were shipped by HP with the 4020i
CD-R drive but with NO BIOS, so these models cannot control boot devices
though they can be used for any secondary SCSI device.Also note that the
ABP5140/5142 boards were rebadged by SIIG as the "SpeedMaster i540/i542"
