Re: using hp proliant ml 330
I got it work, but I was trying to make boot floppies so I could load the
drivers from the install cd, so I could install direct on it.
Could not find directions on this anywhere, or how to compile it
statically in the kernel.

It's gpl released.

It seems to have good enough performance for us.
