New Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) for 2.0 beta?
Is there a new HCL for the 2.0 beta? The dmesg shows 8.1, so is this: http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.1R/hardware.html the right list?
I am trying to find compatible pieces to build my next box (my first one, which has been great, is unable to keep up with my wideband at home).
Yes that should do.
Note that the list you linked is not all inclusive, some manual pages for drivers like ata(4) have their own list of supported hardware that is not included in the main HCL.
