Getting nvnet tu run in mandrake 9.1 is a pain in the ass I know, I have got it to run.
But I have long abandoned mandrake in favor of gentoo.
here is how I got it to run.
I compilled nvnet from source I did not want to install nvaudio in favor of alsa drivers.
download this http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/n....0-0261.tar.gz
now
Code:
 $ tar-zxvf NVIDIA-nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz
Code:
 $ cd nforce/nvnet
Before compiling make sure you have the kernel source code in /usr/src
if not it is in mandrake Installation disk 1
Code:
 # make
Code:
 # make install
It should compile without errors.
Now add nvnet to your /etc/modules
and also add this following line to /etc/modules.conf
Code:
alias eth0 nvnet
Now you have to hand edit your network config as such.
Code:
# touch /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
Now using an editor add this to the empty file you have just created.
Code:
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=192.168.0.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
ONBOOT=yes
note put your ip address this is just an example.
Code:
 # touch /etc/resolv.conf
in this file add the following
Code:
search localdomain
nameserver <YOUR_DNS_SERVER_IP_HERE>
Now edit /etc/sysconfig/network and add this at the bottom.
Code:
GATEWAY=<YOUR_GATEWAY_HERE>
Now if you reboot and go to the mandrake_control_center > network_configuration when you use the wizard nvnet should now show up in the list of
devices.
This brief guide is what worked for me and a static ip config. But regardless it will at least allow you to use the wizard which as you now does not detect the nvnet devise otherwise.

Good Luck.
