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:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

and did:

# ifdown eth0
# ifup eth0

then manually configured /etc/apt/sources.list and I was in business.
