PE2650 - kernel panic in RH8 even with change from tg3 to bcm5700

Hi,

I have a PE2660 server with RH8 (2.4.18-14smp) that is locking up very
frequently with Kernel Panic errors even after doing the following
changes suggested in this list: Modified /etc/module.conf to use bcm5700
instead of tg3; and upgraded to the latest Broadcom and PERC3/di drivers
available from support.dell.com for RH8.

Any suggestions on what else I can do? Thanks very much,
