Hi,

had a nice, shiny new Abit NF8 nForce3 250Gb motherboard for a little over a week now, and I tried to sort out my Linux boot yesterday (i.e. change the root mountings etc), only to find that network didn't work. I've tried installing the latest ForceWare drivers, but to no avail (incidentally, has anyone ever tried to build an x86_64 kernel? One that actually gets identified as x86_64 by the installer?).

However, this is on the normal i386 kernel. When I tried to build the 64bit kernel, I got neither sound nor network, so I have no idea what's going on there... Luckily for me, I still have the original kernel as a boot option.

Any help you can give'd be much appreciated.
