Default Onboard nic

I have an MSI 6367 mobo running RH9.
I think that I have installed the correct drivers, but the onboard nic is not recognised. Is this an IRQ conflict?
I followed advice given in an archive of nvnews.
I hope the following helps:

[root@localhost root]# ifconfig eth0
eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
can help you.
