If you're updating, then go for updating your kernel to version 2.6.2 or higher. As of kernel 2.6.2 you can go for the forcedeth-driver!

I've tried it myself with ML 9.2. After install I had to compile the src.rpm driver to get the onboard NIC working, but after updating to kernel 2.6.3 it worked perfectly with the forcedeth-driver.

I'm now on ML 10.0 CE with kernel 2.6.3 and my NIC works out of the box.

@ inferno:

You have to pass a line into your modprobe.conf:

alias eth0 nvnet
Abit NF7-sl nForce2 / AMD Athlon xp 2700 (@2300 Mhz)
2 x 256 Mb PC 2700 DDR SDRAM
Connect 3D Radeon 9000 128 Mb
Western Digital 120 Gb (7200 rpm, 8 Mb)
Maxtor DiamondMax VL40 31024H1 10.2GB (5400 rpm, 2 Mb)
