Yes, you can use the bcm5700 driver and BASP for linux (included in the 
driver package, available off Dell or Broadcom's site), or you can use 
the tg3 driver and the 'bonding.o' kernel module.

Which is better seems to be the subject of much debate.  The tg3 driver 
seems to be regarded by the open source community as the more stable 
driver, but if you are running something like Oracle RAC they may 
require you to use bcm5700 and BASP to be considered a certified 
configuration (if I remember correctly, although this may have changed...)
