Debian & Broadcom 570x Gigabit


I've tried, I've googled, I've cursed, I've repented my MCSE... I just can't get this bloody thing to work.

I've got a Dell D800 with Debian 3.0 R1 on it (woody, if it matters).

Did a base install from CD, and downloaded what I believe are the drivers for it.

I have a file from Broadcom, installing it (at least I think that's what I'm doing) gives me:

dpkg -i bcm5700-module-2.4.17-pe2550.deb
(Reading database ... 43428 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace bcm5700-module-2.4.17-pe2550 2.0.24-1 (using bcm5700-module-2.3.17-pe2550.deb) ...
Unpacking replaecment bcm5700-module-2.3.17-pe2550 ...
Setting up bcm5700-module-2.3.17-pe2550 (2.0.24-1) ...

From here, I've no idea what to do next. ifconfig just gives me the loopback adapter.

Clearly I'm missing something - any help mucho appreciated.
