Out of curiosity, does anyone know if a version of this driver exists for 
DOS Packet or NDIS2?  I would like to be able to use GHOST to create drive 
images for mass installing our Linux-installed 2650s like we do with the 
2550s (using the intel drivers), but I have been unable to find driver 
support for this chipset that can be used by Ghost, as it only supports 
those two formats as far as I know.

Failing that, it looks like I'm going to have to manually install each 
machine, which is painful and time consuming due to the amount of 
customization required for each server and the number of servers that need 
to be installed.  I can use kickstart files to automate some of it, but 
there is still a lot of extra stuff that needs to be done that KS won't 
easily handle.
