BTW, Broadcom is already supported (BCM5700), pls check out the Release
notes on this link

http://www.freebsd.org/releases/6.0R/hardware-i386.html

and also the HostRAID for SCSI it should be AIC78xx and it is supported, for
SATA, it is either ICH or SIL 3512 where ICH is already supported for SIL
3512, it is still unknown (to me at least).

Well, from the IBM site, you can download the Broadcom CD which have the
linux driver source and you can try to use it on your BSD.

 

For the Host RAID, it is the same.

 

For easy reference purpose, links has been copied below: -

Could you let me know the result coz I am also interested in installing
FreeBSD on IBM x346 or even IBM x336
