i tried freenas and just couldn't get it to be stable in RAID5 configuration (5x200GB IDE drives). Kept dropping one of the drives (different one each time, and i tested all the drives, so it's not hardware).
installed suse 10 this weekend, set up RAID5 and samba and it works just fine. (don't think my success is specific to suse, btw.)
guess the problem with gvinum and freeBSD is too much to overcome.
