Re: debian driver...

The BL460 G6 blade uses a NIC (NC532i - based on a Broadcom BCM 57711E chip) that uses the bnx2x driver. That NIC/driver does not use open-source firmware, which means the firmware is in Debian non-free land and not part of the lenny install media. HP's Dann Frazier (aka dannf) has a script that can be used to insert the non-free firmware into the Lenny install ISO. The script is caled "add-firmware-to" and a web search for that should find the link on people.debian.org.
