Default SuSE 8.0 compile problems

I have an new box running SuSE 8.0; it has an MSI K7N2G motherboard with integrated NVIDIA nforce lan and audio chipsets.

I download the nforce 1.0-0248 tar driver set and tried to compile on the box. After much gnashing of teeth and reading the posts on the board, I got the drivers to compile and install. The LAN driver seems to load OK on boot; I get no joy with th audio driver.

When try to insmod nvaudio module I get:

insmod nvaudio
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_probe_codec
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol unregister_sound_dsp
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol register_sound_dsp
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol register_sound_mixer
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol unregister_sound_mixer
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_set_dac_rate
/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o: unresolved symbol ac97_set_adc_rate

The kernel sources from SuSE are installed from the SuSE ftp site along with the default kernel. I haven't gotten any other symbol errors when compiling and installing other kernel modules. Anyone know why these come up?

I tried installing the rpm packaes for SuSE 8.0 for v. 1.0-0241 and v. 1.0-0236; neither of those would load the nvnet and nvaudio modules either wwithout lots of errors that I am too lazy to capture and append here.

Any help getting this resolved so I can have sound under Linux would be greatly appreciated.

BTW, I've been waiting for several days for someone from Nvidia to respond to my email to the address about this problem. Is anyone at home there? Does anyone care that their drivers don't work?
