I'm not sure about that particular model. We do have drivers for
the 7000/8000 (twe) and 9000 (twa) series.
I have a 7506-4 IDE and two 9500S-4LP SATA 3ware controllers. I've
been having problems with the 7506... I think its a known firmware
bug in the 7506 where the controller can lock up when it has problems
with one of its IDE drives. I have not had any problems with the 9500S's.
3ware's management application probably doesn't work under Dragonfly.
I used the BIOS support to configure mine.
Ultimately the new filesystem design should be able to replace the
functionality, but that won't be in production until the end of the
year (though I hope to get something into beta for the July release).

Thanks Matt. The new filesystem sounds very cool and I would definitely
give it a try if it was available now. When I get this system built,
I'll post my experiences with the 9650.
