If the module is not loaded, did you remember to put alias nvnet eth0 in your /etc/modules.conf ?
Maybe this'll help...
Just the answer I was looking for (even though i'm not the original poster ). I don't know how to put this alias in the conf file though? (I only installed SuSE about an hour ago, first go ).

Cheers for help.
