Default Re: nVidia nForce 2 ethernet. and RedHat 9

Well, back when I was learning linux I had to learn all this stuff so here goes.
Untar the .tgz file. Something like tar -xvzf (name of file)
It should extract a folder or dir depending on the DE/WM you are using.

These are technically supposed to be used to install all the drivers for nforce boards. I beleive by doing a ./configure (enter) then make (enter) then make_install) and that should install the sound, NIC, chipset drivers.

However, I found the sound already worked with RH9 when I used to use it. (Sorry if some of this is off I am trying to remember from then). So all I really need was the NIC to work for me. All I did was go into the untared folder and then there was another folder named Eth or nic or something related to the onboard nic card. You need to be in a terminal in that that dir and type make then make install and it should work for ya.

If you need any clarifications please let me know. It's late and It's been awhile since RH9 for me.
