Hmm, well the raid card appears to be supported by the i2o drivers, so
perhaps if you manually modprobe those from console 2 it would work.  I
haven't worked with i2o myself, but I know I included them on my
installer cd.

ie: drivers/message/i2o/pci.c:    {PCI_DEVICE(PCI_VENDOR_ID_DPT, 0xa511)}

As for the network, those might be among the broadcoms that require the
bcm5700 driver instead of the tg3 driver.  That one is not included in
the kernel at all, but has to be installed from the bcm5700-source
package after installing.  Insert a more standard NIC to do the install
with until you can get the broadcom working I guess.
