Default nForce2 on Mandrake 9.1

I tried to get my brand new nForce2 card (Abit NF7-M) up on running under Mandrake 9.1, to no avail. I first attempted a rpm install (using the current rpm from Nvidia). I simply copied the .o files that came with this RPM and tried to run insmode. The result was lots of missing symbol errors, so that didn't work.

I then tried to download the source version, as I ran make, but this failed with a huge error message, parts of which I've added to the end of this posting.

I tried to follow the advises in the error message displayed by the failed compile, but this was unsuccessful.

In the end I had to go back to 9.0 and use the supplied rpm (which works).

Has anyone been able to compile the nforce software under Mandrake 9.1? Does anyone know where I'm going wrong? I'm kind of desperate because I can't seem to find any RPM-files for 9.0, so among other things I can't install the kdenetwork package , which contains two of the programs I use hte most: gaim and knode.
