Onboard SCSI will work fine.  2450's are ahc or ahd driver, don't
recall which offhand, either of which is in the m0n0wall generic PC
kernel.  If it has a PERC, the drivers for RAID cards are not included
in m0n0wall.

I don't recall what the onboard NIC's are in the 2450's, but I know
they are supported.

(I say this from past FreeBSD 4 experience, not specifically with
m0n0wall, though there shouldn't be any difference)
