nForce Newest Driver for eth0 probem
I use RH9 and motherboard 2thmax 8RDA+, with nVIDIA nForce
The PC is configured as internal lan and crossover to another pc
In RH9, I d/l the latest nForce .rpm driver, but cannot config eth0 successfully, please help.
"nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization"
Add in /etc/modules.conf:
alias eth0 nvnet
options nvnet optimization=1
as indicated by the html documentation.
I try modprobe nvnet; but modules seems not found.
The same PC installed WIN and the land card can be properly setup.

Please d/l and install from the tar ball instead:
tar -xvzf NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar
nvnet.o should be created successfully.
Now seems eth0 can be recognised even at startup.
I will try more .....

How I fixed it...
I had problems installing from source. Typing "make" gave me multiple screens worth of error messages, so I began investigating.
On my virgin RedHat 9.0 installation (only added NTFS RPM), I found that the Makefile was trying to include libraries located at /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/build. However, the file is a symbolic link to /usr/include/linux-2.4.20-8.
Since I didn't have the "Kernel Development" RPMs installed, this link was broken. After installing those files from the RedHat CDs, everything worked perfectly.
Hope this helps out.
