Unhappy asus a7n266-vm lan problems

i'm having problems with the onboard lan for this mobo running redhat 9 and i gather from reading the boards so are a few other people. I down loaded the precompiled rpms from the drivers site but from reading these are for other kernal versions, so following advice given to others i tryed 'make' with the .tar and rpmbuild with the .src but neither return any thing but error messages (below).

this is the last few lines from the make
nvnet.c: In function `nvnet_resume':
nvnet.c:1347: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
nvnet.c:1350: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
nvnet.c:1355: warning: implicit declaration of function `netif_device_attach'
nvnet.c: At top level:
nvnet.c:99: storage size of `nvnet_driver' isn't known
make: *** [nvnet.o] Error 1

nvnet.c:99: storage size of `nvnet_driver' isn't known
make[1]: *** [nvnet.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/nforce/nvnet'
make: *** [nvnet_make] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.5539 (%build)

Using this command ends up with this eror: rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.src.rpm

nvnet.c:99: storage size of `nvnet_driver' isn't known
make[1]: *** [nvnet.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/nforce/nvnet'
make: *** [nvnet_make] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.5539 (%build)


RPM build errors:
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.5539 (%build)









any help, even an explanation of the error i might be able to work it out for my self, would be most appreciated as i am currently stuck transfering files from my main machine to the linux box on cd and back via floppy and i am going through lots of cd and i really really hate floppy discs. I am quite new at this linux stuff so simple steps for my simple head.

thanks all
