I am using Mandrake 9.1 with the same motherboard. I got the video driver *.run file to load at the second attempt (ie re-installing Mandy from scratch) but for the life of me I cannot get nvnet to work. There is a line in my modules.conf file which says:
alias eth0 nvnet
but when I start a terminal as root and type 'alias<enter>' none of the aliases defined in modules.conf are reported.
Also I am getting horizontal distortion on my monitor (Xiod 17" LCD, made by Samsung, Serial IM17RU). This did not happen when I used a PC-Chips motherboard.
Could the problem be that modules.conf is not being called? If so how would I fix it?
