Firstly, the the nic is not a BCM5820. The 5820 is an SSL Accelerator
card sold by Broadcom. The embedded nic is a bcm5721 chipset. I
suspect it wasn't supported by the tg3 driver until the latest update
from Red Hat of 2.1 AS. From the update 6 release notes:
Broadcom Tigon3 (tg3 driver)
o The tg3 driver has been updated from v1.2e4 to v3.10u6
o The new driver is net/tg3.o
You might try updating all the packages to the latest revisions, I
believe 2.4.9-e.57 is the kernel for Update 6.

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 .
O.S. RedHat Linux Advance Server release 2.1AS/i686
new or after upgrade:2.4.9-e.49
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
: init_module: cannot allocate memory
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters,
including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
insmod bcm5820 failed

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