Unofficial RPMS for Broadcom BCM4400 Linux Network Driver Version 2.0.2
I've updated the unofficial RPM packages of the Broadcom BCM4400 driver (a high-quality GPL Linux driver for the network card in the ASUS P4PE mother board, not shipped with Red Hat 9) for testing in a 2.4.20-8 kernel (the one shipped with Red Hat 9).
Debian GNU/Linux (unstable) ship version 1.0.1 of the driver in the bcm4400 package, while Red Hat provide no support for it.
See Bug 194498 in Debian BTS and Bug 91558 in Red Hat's Bugzilla for details.
