At least on one machine with 8 tg3 cards, it finds all its interfaces,
but then drops into:



Setting up network interfaces:
lo
lo IP address: 127.0.0.1/8
7[?25l[1A[80C[10D[1;32mdone[m8[?25h eth0
No configuration found for eth0
7[?25l[1A[80C[10D[1munused[m8[?25h eth1
No configuration found for eth1

for all 8 cards.

Other ones just do this:

Sorry about the jibberish logs. Seems like SLES takes it upon itself
to spew random "enhanced" shit on bootup.
