Need ZenWorks 3.2 NIC driver for Marvell Yukon 88E8056

The question title pretty much says it all. I already checked at http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfcontent/downloads.php/zfdimgdrv
Windows shows the device as "Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller" So, I'm going to guess that even though it's an onboard nic, it uses the PCI Express bus. I'm hoping that doesn't make this impossible.

I was able to follow the directions at http://www.novell.com/documentation/zdfs/index.html?page=/documentation/zdfs/zdfsdepl/data/a70j1e8.html to make a Boot CD with the driver for a different integrated nic, on another computer, so I think I just need help finding, or possibly building, the "something.o" driver file for the Marvell nic I mentioned.

From this I assume you are using PXE and want to be able to PXE boot your machines that have a Marvel chipset in them.  A problem you will also face is that ZDM 3.2 doesn't support SATA Disk Controllers, so even if you get the network card working, you probably won't be able to see the disk.

The best / easist way to work-around this is to download the latest imaging bootcd.iso from support for Zenworks Desktop Mgmt 7, right now the best patch to go for is : http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=-9XG-fkhjHE~

Download the ZDM7SP1_IR3a_IMG_Resource.zip and extract out the bootcd.iso, try writing it to a CD and see if that works for you, since it should (in theory, however ZDM 3.2 is VERY old) download images off the older server with the newer code.

Otherwise I recommend upgrading ZDM to ZDM7, then you can get all the latest drivers.

Lastly if you don't have any joy with the bootcd.iso, and the PC you are using has a regular IDE controller, I can assist you with modifying the linux.2 image to include the correct drivers.

Actually, I was using a 3.2 boot CD. I'm not really sure why we were using 3.2. The ZfDAgent we install on the systems is 6.5. The 7 CD  looks like it's going to work. Thanks.
