I have a HP ProLiant DL380 server and I am trying to install Debian on it.
I had an error that said dhcp config failed at the installation and Debian could not find my NIC.
I've Googled it and found out that I need to install required Broadcom NIC drivers.
There are images that 3rd people have created but I don't want to use them as it will be a server.
Another way to install them is to download .deb package and install it from a removable media when asked.
So I went ahead and did an exper install mode and choose adding packages from a media so an option appeared for me to install stuff from removable media now.
Each time I choosed it, my flash drive's lights were blinking but then I was getting an error says this package can not be installet are you sure to instal non signed package.
I say yes at that stage but I still can not install and it says this is probably happening because of kernel version miss match.
I downloaded latest stable copy of debian from official debian site and downloading the stable squeeze copy of the driver from official Debian site too.( http://packages.debian.org/testing/kernel/firmware-bnx2
What am I doing wrong? How do I check my kernel version?
And after this started happening my installation hangs at detecting network hardware part, how can I deal with this?
Thanks tons from now...
