Default nic drivers for Opteron on Asus SK8N

I want buy this board too, but without drivers I get the full supportet Tyan K8W.
I can only say you right here and need the drivers from Nvidia.
thats from SuSEx86-64 mailinglist:

For the onboard network Nvidia should (or maybe they have already)
released binary-only add on 64bit drivers. Nvidia doesn't release chipset
documentation or free drivers, so we cannot directly support it.
