I'm beginning the install of 6.1 RELEASE on a Dell 1950. It uses Dual Embedded Broadcom NetXtreme II 5708 Gigabit Ethernet NICs, and they are not correctly recognized during the install. The system identifies them as bce0 and bce1, but apparently the driver isn't working right.

Does anyone have these NICs working?  If so, what driver did you use?

Those particular cards should use a generic driver (in this case bc). The fact that your interfaces are found though seems to point to the fact that things are not configured properly, network-wise. Are you sure the network settings you're providing are correct, or that the actual NICs themselves have a solid link to a switch and are working?
