It seems to work fine as far as I know, although I don't personally own such a computer myself. The only problem I've heard of must be the card reader that doesn't work.

Which of the two card-readers would that be? I have the white 8GB SSD version with a 16GB SDHC card in the left-side slot for extra storage. Would suck if I lost access to 2/3 of the storage on my AAO. (I'm thinking of installing FreeBSD 8.0 btw.)

They're refering to FreeBSD 7.x. FreeBSD 8 has got SDHC support for the most common chipsets.

I have installed FreeBSD on 8 Acer Aspire One computers. Only one got problem. After I installed, everything shows ok. Then I boot it. It reports Error 17. I used dump and restore from another hard drive. The same thing. Then I booted from another USB hard drive and did a bsdlabel -B /dev/ad2s1 Then everything is OK.
