Alright, so for the record I have an almost fully working Kalyway 10.5.2 Leopard (No internet though) installation. My problem is that when i activate the internal network card (ethernet) in the BIOS (set to on), when i boot to OSX it freezes at the login screen every time, and trying to boot to the kalyway DVD it freezes at the line of text saying "AppleBCM5751Ethernet: 1 1659 setpowerlevels-returning early, have a 5721. onoff=, F PciDevice=ID" or those words in some order. I can't get my wireless card to work (DWL-G510) so this ethernet is my only option for internet and i need it. I will appreciate any help.




My system:

Dell Optiplex GX 280

Intel 915 Express chipset

Broadcom 57xx Integrated Gigabit controller

512 mb RAM
