Well, Ubuntu 6.10 comes with a 2.6.17 kernel that has support for your
Broadcom NIC. But XENs 2.6.16 doesn't have (it has support for Broadcom tg3
NICs of course, but not for your specific modell). The simplest way is to
download Broadcoms open source drivers and compile them for your XEN
I have the same problem here and it isn't a big thing to do...
