Default wake on lan (WOL) under linux

Hello!

I have a shuttle barebone system SN41G2 with the nforce chipset. everything works fine (network, audio, usb, ide, firewire etc.). what i need is wake on lan under linux (which works under windows 2k). i?m using the current driver version, my distribution is suse 8.2.
my first try was this:

Code:
metalu:~ # ethtool -s eth0 wol g
Cannot get current wake-on-lan settings: Operation not supported
  not setting wol
so it seems that ethtool cannot handle the device (unsupported?). so: is there a way to use wol under linux with my chipset??

greets,
