As there is no RPM available for Mandrake 9.1 on the Nvidia site, you can make it yourself.
1. First download the src RPM:
2. Then rebuild the RPM for your system:
"rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.src.rpm"
If you get errors at this stage, it's probably because you don't have the kernel-source RPM installed. Install it using the Mandrake Software manager.
3. Install the new RPM:
"rpm -ivh /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i586/NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.i586.rpm"
4. Configure the network in the Mandrake Control Center.
