hardware isues
 
I have a broadcom bcm5722 and a dual intel pro/1000 pt nic in a dell
t110. The setup sees the cards and i put them into automatic mode.
After the install no cards are detected at all. Astaro 8.01 detects and
utilizes all of these cards just fine. I have also tried ubuntu server
10.04 lts and they work fine. I'm curious if this is a bug with Centos 6?

The broadcom is embedded the intel dual port is the addon. Only centos
6 has this issue i am currently running kvm under ubuntu 10.04 right
now. I also did a test install of esxi and astaro and they worked
perfectly there. It is something weird with centos.

First time I didn't...the subsequent times I did. I tried setting them
as dhcp to no avail. I then tried static. I'll try one more time if it
doesn't work i'll have to stick with ubuntu...
