has some dirt on that. rmmod was not availble, so I skipped network
configuration and whatever else required network access. Rebooted into
newly installed system and found that tg3 drver was now working.
Added the following to /etc/network/interfaces:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
# ifdown eth0
# ifup eth0
then manually configured /etc/apt/sources.list and I was in business.
