I intend to buy a MB with Intel G965 chipset and use the 6 SATA channels  
to connect 6 harddrives. Now I wonder: Does NetBSD support the current  
Intel chipsets with ICH8?

According to the documentation at
the piixide driver supports the Intel PIIX, PIIX3, PIIX4, and 82801  
(ICH/ICH0/ICH2/ICH3/ICH4/ICH5/ICH6) IDE controllers. This information is  
also valid for NetBSD-3.0. Does this really mean NetBSD-4.0 will have no  
support for ICH7 nor ICH8 - or has possibly the documentation not been  

Since I want to use RAIDframe, running NetBSD on top of some Linux  
XEN-dom0 is not an option. I need native support from NetBSD for the  

Kind regards
