Okay, I'm closing this installation report.  Whether the tg3 driver
will be included in Debian's 2.6 kernel again in the future remains to
be seen.

In any case, if you want to run 2.6, here is what you can do:
 - install with 2.4
 - boot into the system with 2.4
 - install 2.6, download the bcm5700-source package
 - boot into 2.6, compile the bcm5700 driver and load it.
