Angry nvnet doest work

Hoi!

I wanna to install the driver for the network on board card. i have a shuttle pc with nforce2 chip. i did the following
first my kernel ( I use RH9 )

uname -r ----> 2.4.20-20.9

i download this driver and installed it with rpm --->NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.rh90up_2.4.20_9.athlon.rpm
( no errors )

further i installed the kernelsource -->kernel-source-2.4.20-9.i386.rpm
( no errors )

next step:

cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig
make dep

then i looked in the files for the rpm archive:

rpm -qpl NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.rh90up_2.4.20_9.athlon.rpm

/lib/modules/2.4.20-9/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o
/lib/modules/2.4.20-9/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_nforce-1.0
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_nforce-1.0/GNULicense.txt
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_nforce-1.0/NVLicense.txt
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_nforce-1.0/ReleaseNotes.html
/usr/src/nvidia/nvgart/README
/usr/src/nvidia/nvgart/linux-2.4.20-agpgart.diff

then i want to check:
modprobe -l | grep nv
/lib/modules/2.4.20-20.9/kernel/drivers/char/nvram.o

o_O where is my module nvnet.o???

cat /etc/modules.conf
[...]
alias eth0 nvnet
[...]

when i use modeprobe nvnet: cant locate module

when i use the redhat networktool ( and also in startup screen ) device seems to be missing, delay install

whats going wrong?
