Default redhat 8 - no nvnet on nForce

Alright, I got the integrated video to work with my RedHat 8, now the next step is to get the integrated ethernet and sound to work. Using the source Tarballs, I compiled the nvnet.o and nvaudio.o modules, and went an tried to insmod them.

For the nvnet.o, it says the module is compiled with gcc version 2.0 while the kernel is compiled with gcc version 3.0. I know I have gcc 3.2, so I went to dig a bit deeper. I went in to do a 'make clean' and see if I can compile the modules manually, and it turns out the culprit (as it seems) is "nvnetlib.o" which came as part of the tarball without the source code.

Since the associated RPM are for RedHat 7.3, is it possible that "nvnetlib.o" was compiled with gcc version 2.0, and therefore when I link that into the "nvnet.o" module and try to do a "insmod", RedHat complained?

And where can I get the source for "nvnetlib.o" so I can compile that with my gcc 3.2 so I can use it on my system?
