[Chugalug] GigE NICs

The major chipset manufacturers have all submitted drivers to the
kernel and are usually installed by default.

I believe the Broadcom NIC drivers most of the times are "bge",
NVIDIA's are "nge", Intel I can't quite remember off the topic of my
head, it may be "e1000g", and Realtek is "rge".

I'm not 100% sure of those, the driver names I remember are what
Solaris identifed them as.

Good luck.
