In datacenters folks might not be able to insert a removale media since
they're PXE installing via a remote console (e.g. iLO). Given that the
bnx2 is built into HP servers this isn't an unlikely situation (I know
people who already ran into it). So having a link to a generic
description that explains howto get firmware into the initrd itself
might be a good idea.
