There are no Dell DKMS RPMs for RHEL 6.0, all driver updates are in kmod format. What kernel are you running? If you can't find a kmod RPM for a kernel other than the base RHEL 6.0 kernel, it's probably because native driver support for your Broadcom NICs was added in follow-up releases.

Anyone know where I can find the most recent version of the Dell DKMS RPM package for Broadcom NetExtreme II NICs? I'm trying to install it on a PER510 running RH60 (X86_64). It doesn't appear to be available under support downloads, nor in any of the repositories. I've checked the latest OMSA DVD and it only contains a kmod-kmp package which is built for the original kernel as shipped so it doesn't work with an updated kernel.
