I am building a new computer to run NetBSD on. But I have a couple of
questions first:

1. Can NetBSD make use of Serial-ATA controllers/drives yet? The Intel
D875PBZ board has both EIDE and Serial-ATA controllers but I would
prefer to eliminate a ribbon cable if possible.

2. I will need to interface this computer with a 802.11b wireless
network. There are a few cards listed as compatable but can anyone
recommend a wireless PCI card that they have has a good experience with?
