eracks.com offers open source systems, including FreeBSD, on the box, out
of the box. (:  I have not dealt with them, so I can't relate any
experience with their performance or support, but they certainly look
worth investigating.

endpcnoise.com is open source friendly, although you'll probably have to
install the software yourself. Their site only mentions Ubuntu (last I looked),
but I'm running FreeBSD on one of their machines right now. Nice machine,
and everything I need works.

You might also want to check for any screwdriver shops in your
town that could take the hardware list from http://freebsd.org and
assemble a compatible system that suites your needs.

Keep us posted.

Good luck,
Gordon
