It may be supported by the amr driver
<>. That
driver does support other LSI MegaRAID controllers, but the docs don't
specifically mention the 150-6. However, for reasons unknown to me
(probably just an oversight?), the amr driver isn't included in the
amd64 INSTALL kernel, or in any of the distributed amd64 kernels. You
could cross-compile your own kernel from Linux or FreeBSD, but that
seems like a lot of work to get an OS installed :)

As for your other machine, the nForce3 ethernet requires a binary
driver from nVidia, along with a LKM interface to the nVidia code that
you can get here: <>. I
don't know why the D-Link ethernet didn't work for you though; it
should be supported by either the vr driver or the rtk driver. A copy
of the kernel boot messages would be helpful in determining why NetBSD
didn't recognize the card.
