Well, kind of my fault too for not getting aroiund to testing the driver
for two weeks - I was out of the country so didn't get a chance.

Yes, I can see that, and a better bce driver is very much a Good Thing.
I have another identical box running 7.2-PRE without lagg and that works

What surprises me is that nobody else has made any reports either
way - neither a "me too" on the issure, nor a "it works ok here". Surely
I cant be the only one using HP servers + Cisco switches and needing
redundancy on the links ? Anyone else out there care to chip in ?

Let me know if/wher there are things to test though - after the 7.1 relese
routing problems I have now allocated a box for testing this kind of
stuff, so it's fairly easy to do - I will be away from thursday for
another a week though unfortunately which will make that hard :-(
