These are the only components you should have trouble with (with FreeBSD 2.1)

I don't believe the 3COM PCI cards are supported, you might want
to check into the SMC 9332 (10/100 Etherpower card), or any of the 10
megabit SMC's should be supported as well.  NE2000 compatible cards are
supported although (among several other brands).

I think there is IDE support for drives cd-roms, but am not sure if this one
is supported, (if it's SCSI it should be no problem).  I think the 4x
Toshiba is a SoundBlaster compatible cd-rom.  It can be attached to either
an 8-bit card that probably comes with it, or the interface on the 
soundblaster cards that support the SB compatible rom drives.

Anyone else have any suggestions/comments/corrections?
