Possible BSD Newbie


Hello,

Do BSD variants support SATA hard drives?
Do BSD variants support an nVida GeForce 128MB video card?
I have 2 Western Digital WD C WD1200JD-75GBB0 hard drives(which are SATA based) and I am looking for a Unix-like operating system that supports these hard disks.
Also, would most Linux source code work under a BSD variant?

This has nothing to do with FreeBSD really. If you mean will you be able to see text at the console, sure. If you want to see pretty colors, does it work in XFree86? probably.
