I too am running the nForce 2 Delta and I have recently installed
RedHat 9.0 with the latest nForce drivers.

If you look in XWindows on your desktop there is an icon
titled 'start here', open that up, then go into settings
or preferences, and there is a 'network' icon. open that up
and apply the necessary settings for the 'nvnet' ethernet
device. hopefully this works for you, unfortunately my
nvnet ethernet device says it's unable to activate.

anyone else had this problem?

i tried this one with success

i too had some problems getting my onboard ethernet running.

after installing the newest drivers, the ethernet card was detected, but still no response from the dhcp server.

in the end, i had to deactivate the acpi feature.

the bootloader i use is "grub" on a SuSE 8.2 system. there i only had to add the lines noacpi in the options section of the system which i want to boot.

after that, everything worked fine.
