Have purchased 50 new computers with Intel board DG965SS with Core 2 Duo
has integrated network controller 82566DC. This controller, according to
Intel was supported in the E1000 driver of September 2006 (for Windows).

Not identified with ZDM 7.1.

Downloaded and tried from Forge a e1000.ko that was uploaded in October
2006. Copied the module as per 7.1 doco. (very uncomfortable with
Linux, although SLED 10 installed easily) but this did not identify the
controller either. References to installation procedures here refer to
linux.2 rather than initrd.

Reading submissions here I suppose I should just try Hot Patch 2. A copy
of initrd with the lates NIC drivers would be great if it were available.
