Default K7N2-L with Mandrake 9.1

Hi All,

Linux virgin here (although been using and abusing various computers for 18 years ;o))

My problem is with the onboard ethernet for the board. I've downloaded and set-up the latest drivers NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.mdk90up_2.4.19_16.athlon.rpm but it's still not behaving.

Here's where I am so far:

modules.conf lists the network card as: alias eth0 nvnet ;as it's supposed to apparently.

However, in Mandrake Control Centre in the Networking Section it is listed as per below:

Vendor: NVidia Corporation
Bus: PCI
Bus ID: 10DE:66:1462:570C
Location on Bus: 0:4:0
Descriptiom: nForce2 MCP Networking Adaptor
Module: Unknown <--- Now my techie instinct says this is the problem (odd that!!) How do I fix it? Any clues?
Media Class: NETWORK_ETHERNET

Oh and when I looked at the PCI bus specs, for the ethernet card it said "Unknown device" even though it listed it as an ethernet card??

Any and all help gratefully received

Cheers,

Julian
