How to get netconsole to work:
1. Build your 2.6 kernel with tg3 support AND netconsole as part of the kernel A. This is the easiest way, I couldn't do it via modules as I couldn't get the polling to work. 2. Pass in to the kernel as a parameter the netconsole information A. This will automatically send the console information to the destination address when eth0 is up.
Doing this worked for me, but a little bit of a pain was involved. Hope this helped.

If your tool doesn't have to support polling can you please pass that on to me? That's one side effect of the netconsole tool. You need to have polling enabled in the Network driver. I've been having trouble getting that to fly actually.

yes, we have used that off and on for a while. I hope they improved it to be a real module, but if not I have an iproved version here ...
thanks for the pointer.
