    Default Need firmware drivers

    Our new server just arrived, but the installer says that we need some non-free drivers/firmware. The filename is gives is bnx2-09-4.0.5.fw. It appears that this contains the drivers for our ethernet card. Without them, UT will not install.

    Any idea where to get those drivers?

    Well, I just found this at http://packages.debian.org/lenny/all...-bnx2/download, but I'm not sure what to do with the file. I'll try putting it on USB and loading it during installation.

    I'd put another NIC in and disable that one in BIOS.

    just grab an e1000 intel nic somewhere.

    I'll have our systems guys order one. I'm sure we don't have any extra gig NICs lying around. It's a bummer that Broadcom is so weird about their Linux drivers.

    Yup... and that is why I stick with Intel... but even so can you help us all out by yelling at them to support something other than Red Hat? Perhaps then we could get updated drivers directly from the manufacturer to actually work.

    I can't find an e1000. Dell has an Intel PRO/1000 PT dual NIC. Would that work?

    Nevermind. Our systems guy just found the drivers for the Broadcom NICs and loaded them onto the server via USB.
