Broadcom driver for PE1750 and RHEL ES 2.1?

Has anyone managed to install RedHat ES 2.1 onto a PE1750?

I've got past the PERC4/Si driver load (megaraid_2002), but now can't get the bcm5700 to load successfully for the Broadcom NIC's.

I've tried various things, including using the 'multi' driver to load the newer tg3_12e3 driver, compiling the source RPM for the bcm5700 supplied with the 1750 etc.

I've temporarily installed an Intel NIC, but would like to get the Broadcom's working.

Does anyone have a fix for this?
