I have exactly the same drive in my laptop, Seagate Momentus XT 750GB,
with dualboot FreeBSD/Window$ installed on it using MBR and BSD
slices. The installation of FreeBSD was exactly the same as anywhere
else :) As it was said here, Momentus' Adaptive Memory technology uses
SSD as read cache, that's all. The OS doesn't even guess that these
8GBs of SSD are present somewhere :)
