Tyan Toledo q35T S5220 motherboard and FreeBSD

This is a short recap of experiences with FreeBSD on the Tyan q35T S5220 server motherboard. I had not seen a similar post elsewhere on the net so I put this together in an effort to help others who might have this board.
 
Before you begin, make sure you have the latest BIOS from Tyan. They don't distribute it on bootable media, so you probably have to hack around placing the BIOS files on a bootable CD image from www.bootdisk.com.
