thanks a lot
I assume you did not upgrade your kernel - though you should to version 2.4.22-2149. YOU MUST HAVE kernel sources installed to do this.

Go into your terminal and type: rpm -qa |grep kernel-source
it should output 1 line with your kernel source version. If it does not, you need to install it.

Anyway, grab NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz package.

Go into your terminal and do the following:

1. tar zxfv NVIDIA_nforce*
2. cd NVIDIA_nforce*
3. make
4. make install
5. modprobe nvnet

It should automatically insert it into your kernel. Reboot, let kudzu detect your NIC and configure it.

Report back
