Not working

Out of the box almost everything is working, the basics is covered, stuff like keyboard, USB, VGA, Power Management and Integrated LAN, but the Intel Ethernet Server Adapter I340 is not working on Debian Squeeze running the XEN kernel, and it's only a driver problem, those can easily be compiled.. This problem might be fixed in a newer kernel since those drivers were already in the backport kernel when I tested out this setup, and they will definitely be included in Debian Wheezy.
