To add to that- I'm running two of the sata version of that card, 
2400SA (4x 80gb SATA doing RAID-5, and the other 2x 80gb SATA- 
mirrored), and they've been quiet and solid with FreeBSD 4.9 and .10 so 
far.  (my aaccli complaints are just whining, really- I like the cards 
just fine.)

I do understand that the FreeBSD aac driver does contain that Adaptec 
driver blob, totally different design than the OpenBSD aac right, (back 
to the start of this thread); secret sauce...  It works, but it does 
make me feel all dirty now. :)
