I'm not a linux guy (yet) I'm just getting started both with linux and
ZFD imaging.

We're trying to image HP/Compaq dc5000 PC's with broadcom nics. The tg3
driver loads, but never activates- I'm unable to get an DHCP address
only when booting off of the cd. IF I look at the hwinfo -- netcard, the
link is not active, but the driver is. I have no idea except that the
nic is not working and unable to get an IP. It is software. Booting off
of the HD is fine.

I can't even get the hwinfo to copy to floppy- I'm so inexperienced with
linux and bash prompts.

Any ideas?
