We're a hosting company and offer the Plesk CP as an option to our
customers. Plesk currently doesn't work with anything later than Hardy.
:( They won't give an ETA on release, and our stock of r200s is running
down, so starting to offer 210s and 410s.

I've been playing around this afternoon after a couple of suggestions,
and have upgraded the driver with the latest one from broadcom (v2.0.8e)
, and this works as expected. IPMI still works once the bnx2 driver is

Have updated a bug with Ubuntu to say that this is happening, as all
they did to support the 5716 was add the PCI ID to the existing driver.
Hopefully they'll roll the latest driver into the hardy kernel.
