That is a good idea but Broadcom only gave me "snippets" of the DOS

I did manage to locate a 2.6 Linux driver (totally unlike the tg3 code),
and it has the required NVRAM programming code.  I've back-ported it to
the tg3 driver in etherboot and I'll let you know how it goes.

no, but it might be easy. You could try running the dos code under
testbios or dosemu to see if that works.
