No, I have actually encountered that same problem on an ML310 which has a bge
NIC and nothing but 64-bit PCI slots. I didn't even realize that the Intel
NIC I had _was_ 64-bit, until I tried plugging in a 32-bit Adaptec 2940UW,
and realized I needed a 64-bit SCSI card.
Regarding your other idea of cvsupping a 4-STABLE /usr/src tree and moving
it over to the Proliant, that sounds like its worth a shot. The only gotcha
is that sometimes Compaq doesn't go out of its way to support IDE hard disks
on SCSI servers. If you have the ability to burn the /usr/src tree to an ISO
CD-R filesystem or burn a .tar file onto a CD-R treating it like an optical
floppy, that might get you going.
Otherwise, include your mailing address, and perhaps a kind soul here on the
list can send you a 64-bit Intel card.
