'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

Please try it again... and then attach "dmesg" output here, so we see what's going wrong

run menuconfig or xconfig (or whatever you use to configure your kernel)

and choose:
"Device Drivers"->"Networking Support"->"Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)"->"Reverse Engineered nForce Ethernet Support"
