:-)  Now... not then.  We often forget how much has changed even over just
the last 10 years.

Hi Dave.

I have to agree with Stan...  I know about the firmware packages... but for
both the Broadcom BXN2 nics and the Q-Logic QLA23xx HBAs I have never gotten
the firmware bundle to work properly.  I always ended up with a 5min boot
delay as the modules couldn't find the firmware files.  So I build my own
modules with the blobs inside and life is good...

Thanks.  -Cheers, Peter.
