Re: tftp problem



I had the same problem, see:

https://listman.redhat.com/archives/kickstart-list/2003-February/msg00104.html

I didn't mention it in the message, but this problem was also with a
broadcom (BCM5701), using the tg3 driver. Unfortunately, I never have
resolved this.

Sorry I can't be of help, but I just thought I'd write to bring
attention to this issue. It seems to be a bug.
