This machine is using the normal bnx2 driver (2.1.11) for which there is a complete set of firmwares (provided by the kernel-firmware package). If you don't need the 2.2.1 driver I suggest you remove the kmod-bnx2 package from the first machine and fall back to the driver in the normal kernel package. /Peter
