This wiki page will answser all your questions :-)

http://wiki.debian.org/Firmware

In brief, you need to install "firmware-bnx2" package from the non-free
repository.

You want the firmware-bnx2 package. On an installed system you enable
the non-free archive and get it in your usual way. During an install put
the .deb on a USB stick. The Debian wiki will have more on catering for
firmware.

On install of Debian Squeeze - I get the following messege:

the missing firmware files are: bnx2/bnx2-mips-06-5.0.0.j3.fw

does anyone know how i can get around this ?
Make the network card be seen during install ? or after install ?

I have located a file bnx2/bnx2-mips-06-5.0.0.j3.fw in the debian repository.
But do not know how to or when to use it ?
thanks

Download the module, put it into /lib/firmware, reboot, & your card
should 'just work'. (This is how I get my wifi cards working.)
