I've have a dual Opteron system (MB Tyan 2885) which has a Broadcom
ethernet interface (the infamous tg3 driver). I've also installed a SATA
raid card (a very nice LSI 300-8x, uses the megaraid_mbox driver).
My problem is this: how on earth do I install Debian on this system?
If I boot unstable netinst I get ethernet working but not the raid
system. Apparently a 2.6.11 kernel or newer is required for that. But
Debian has removed the tg3 driver in that kernel. Seems to me that I can
one or the other but not both.
