Ok, it does appear to the be BGE driver, as you suggested. Reinstalled,
after resetting the bios, and as long as I don't configure the network
it boots and seems happy.
I need a little help, I setup a sup file, and downloaded the sys hiearchy,
not sure which files to copy over to the stock 6.1-RELEASE? In the
directory there where two files that looked promising, if_bge.c and
and I copied them over and tried to build a kernel, and it complained
needing 4 arguements, and only getting 3.
I can copy whatever I need to a flash drive and read it on the DL320, so
the files there is no problem. I've tried pulling the 6.1-CURRENT
and it won't build at all.
Can you point me to the updated driver files?

I have one of these running mail right now. Here's what I found:
1) The onboard ethernet chip driver in 6.1-release is buggy and
will panic the system. Install and don't enable ethernet. Download
the current bge driver from CVS, copy to a floppy, copy from
floppy to server, recompile kernel.
2) Turn off the onboard SATA raid in BIOS, it uses adaptec
microcode that isn't supported. If you want mirrored raid, there's a
procedure that you can do to get it.
3) for some weird reason the system will hang during boot for up
to TWO MINUTES. After it gets done doing whatever it's doing,
it will continue booting.
Install normally, don't do anything special. BIOS settings should
