Good day to all!
     I encountered a problem with the installation of
RH Linux AS 2.1, it didn't install the driver for
Broadcom BCM5820 and the configuration of video for
GUI. So i tried to upgrade the kernel problem persist.

See description below .
PE800 
BIOS A00
O.S. RedHat Linux Advance Server release 2.1AS/i686
(Pensacola)
Kernel Version
  new or after upgrade:2.4.9-e.49 
  old: 2.4.9-e.smp
NIC: Broadcom BCM5820
I installed the O.S. w/o using DOSA or  I use
installion from CD. didn't install the driver for
broadcom and video which is my problem.

I tried to search trhu dell.com for an update driver
for this NIC, and video, can't find the driver for
linux AS2.1 on the website on RH Linux ES 2.1 & 3.0

I tried to modprode bcm5820 an error appeared
/lib/modules/2.4.9-e.3smp/kernel/drivers/crypto/bcm/bcm5820.o

Where can I find the driver for this server and help
me how to install this step by step?
