I saw your solution earlier to get this working. Very interesting.
I've had a similar experience in the PCI world; I've had to disable some
onboard non-Linux-friendly built-in NICs and throw in a
3Com/Intel/Realtek 10/100 card to get things working.
All the more reason for us all to vote with our dollars.

>>>Now, however, I have a different problem. When it gets to "Doing the pivot_root" the client hangs and says "nfs server 192.168.0.254 not responding, still trying." This message goes away and everything continues to load perfectly if I disconnect the client from the switch and reconnect a crossover cable from the nic to the server. Once X is started on the client and I log in, I can reconnect the client and server to the switch and run apps just fine.
