Angry nvnet and RH9 hangs or poor performance

I downloaded and installed the nforce2 drivers (NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.rh90up_2.4.20_9.athlon.rpm) for my RH9 machine with an Asus A7N266-VM. I went to great lengths to install the deprecated kernel RPM (2.4.20_9) for which Nvidia has prepared a binary RPM. I also tried working with the tar files and compiling them into my kernel.

I found that the following occurs:

Simple network use (file transfer, etc) has abysmal throughput and uses 100% CPU or the kernel hangs completely.

I have not seen many examples of people having luck with this chipset. Is this a temporary problem which Nvidia is correcting? Based upon the experience I have had unless this is corrected I will be deliberately looking for motherboards which do not include onboard lan.
