It appears that the tg3 driver has been entirely removed from the debian stock 2.6.11 kernel images, this would be fine, except that that means the easiest way to get a working driver in debian, now, is to use the bcm5700 non-free driver. ARGH. Gimme back my tg3 driver, dammit.

In other news, decided to play with sshfs, seems quite cool, got the fuse module loaded and mounting remote filesystems over ssh seems to work quite nicely :)

May compile a custom 2.6.11 later to get back the nice shiny tg3 module, which is much nicer than the non-free driver I've currently got loaded. sigh.
