Two small comments on this part:

 * If the user requests a firmware to be loaded
   (hw-detect/load_firmware=true) without having the files available on
   any media, no error message will currently be displayed.  I think
   this unusual behaviour might worth a mention in 6.4.
 * At least one user asked about how to provide bnx2 firmware available
   for the netboot installation method [1].  I think section 6.4.1 might
   be a good place for such instructions.
