Description of problem:
anaconda puts multiple ethX devices into /etc/modules.conf for the same 
broadcom 5701 card. One eth device will point to the tg3 module, the other will 
point to the bcm5700 module. For example:

alias eth1  tg3
alias eth2  bcm5700

Should only be one entry, and it should be the bcm5700 module

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install hampton beta 4 with a broadcom bcm5700 card
2. view modules.conf --> 2 eth entries exist

Actual Results:  alias eth1  tg3
alias eth2  bcm5700

Expected Results:  alias eth1  bcm5700

Additional info:
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-10 18:17:07 EDT
Actually, tg3 is the preferred driver.

Did you do a kickstart install with specific drivers specified?
Comment 2 John A. Hull 2002-04-10 18:30:57 EDT
No, just interactive CD, FTP, and NFS installs.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-10 18:42:13 EDT
Is this the *stock* beta4 anaconda & kudzu?
Comment 4 John A. Hull 2002-04-11 15:34:15 EDT
Yes. Happens with stock beta 3 also.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-11 17:11:32 EDT
The bcm5700 driver has lots of extraneous MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE entries... that's
what's causing this problem.

Worked around in kudzu-0.99.51-1.
