I think the problem I encountered is quite common to a lot of people. 

These days I am trying to compile a XenLinux kernel from source. Everything works fine except the NIC card.
I have searched a lot and tried a lot before I send out this email for help:
(1) I have enabled BNX2 option when I compile the kernel.
(2) I have downloaded bnx2 dirver source code from Broadcom to compile, but failed.
(3) Some people say that it is caused by the Dell firmware. Any expert to confirm this??
(4) I noticed that many people encountered the same problem, but the solution they provided also does not work in my machine.

Here is the details of my server:

CPU: Intel Xeon E5540
Memory: 16GB
NIC: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM 5709S

Host OS: CentOS-5.4-x86_64

Any attention or comment to my question is highly appreciated. Thank you very much!
