Machine: Dell Precision T1500

Output of lspci -knn (or lspci -nn):

Won't recognize the Broadcom BCM57780 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe device (although lspci does). I found this bug:


which indicates the problem will be fixed when the installer uses the linux-2.6.32-11 kernel. I don't know how to find an installer that uses this kernel, so in the meanwhile, I have a totally useless brand new computer. Any help?
