Unhappy nvidia nforce MCP ethernet adapter

hello, this is my first post so if i am posting in the wrong place forgive me.
i have this nvidia nforce MCP on board ethernet adaptor and i have installed RH 9.0 , it simply does not work. I have a cable connection and it does not recognize the ethernet adaptor. I read the previous posts in the forum and i already downloaded the NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar and the rpm file. The tar file does not work with "make" command and i cant compile it, i understand that it is a problem with the kernel version number but i dont know how to load it (read about it in a forum). After the installation of the rpm package it seems to recognize my adaptor but when i try to activate it i get the error "nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initalization"
Can anybody help me how to install the tar file, or do you know how to make this ethernet adaptor work?
i get the below message when i untar and write the "make" command
[root@gokselinux nforce]# make
make -C nvnet
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/goksel/nforce/nvnet'

make[1]: *** [install] Error 1

is it true that it is a kernel-source-version-number problem, how do i load it?
