I tried this patch agains the NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.tar.gz package and then tried to compile it against both
linux-2.5.62-mm3 and linux-2.5.63-mm1
(This is the kernel with Andrew Morton's patchset).
In both cases it complains about missing declaration of a IRQ_<something>.
I'll try to compile against the plain vanilla-linux sources tomorrow, just a little bit sick of rebooting for today
Btw. If you are using the nvnet driver, then you might have an A7N8X motherboard, so I'm just curious, did you get the 3Com NIC to work?
