Default Problem: Install forcedeth in Red Hat 7.3

Hi everyone,

I have a problem installing forcedeth driver for NFORCE4 in Red Hat 7.3
I have to stick with RH7.3 due to the limit support from my EDA tools.

My mobo is Asus A8N5X with NFORCE4 chipset. RH 7.3 cannot recognize the chipset. So I have to upgrade a kernel to the latest 2.4.36.2.
On-board soundcard and ATA/SATA seem working. However, forcedeth module is missing.

I have already inserted by editing /etc/rc #insmod forcedeth
without success.

#lsmod

Do you guy have any suggestion?
Or do I need to enable some parameters while compiling kernel?

Many thanks in advance.
