Same issue here... both NIC's requried, but putting in a good ole Intel/FXP card
won't bother me in the least.

Any known issues running FreeBSD/amd64 on a Sun x2100 server? Single
opteron box, dual GigE, 80GB S-ATA, 1GB Ram, specs as below:
The X2100 is based on a Tyan Tomcat K8E (S2865) mainboard without
PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports. So you should look at success reports
for this board.
Any more info you found out about this? I'm about to order one of
these to test unless I find out otherwise it doesn't work.
My only concern is that one of the ethernets is bge and the other is
nve which is not known to be that stable, and I need both ports... I
suspect it will be ok, though. If push comes to shove I guess
installing an intel NIC card would not be out of the question.
The rest of the hardware seems to be supported based on chipsets I
looked up from kernel boot messages from linux, openbsd, and netbsd
posted on the web. curiously i never found a boot message from anyone
