It doesn't matter if the broadcom chip is onboard or on an extern 
interface card. It is always connected via PCI bus.
Matt wants to tell you that you should try to configure a static IP 
address during installation.
Please read the bug report for workaround...
Is there a BCM705? I think you have the BCM_5_705 gigabit ethernet if I 
remember right.
Please post again if the workaround works for you.
