Default nic drivers for Opteron on Asus SK8N

Are there any drivers for linux available for this ?

I have an opteron 144 on the Asus SK8N with 1Gb Ram

Suse 8.2 Enterprise Pro installed in 64-bit mode and everything working except the onboard nic.

Tried for a while to compile up the default nvidia chipset drivers but they are a no-go in 64-bit..

might be time to put in another default nic.

Any ideas anyone ??

I want buy this board too, but without drivers I get the full supportet Tyan K8W.
I can only say you right here and need the drivers from Nvidia.
thats from SuSEx86-64 mailinglist:

For the onboard network Nvidia should (or maybe they have already)
released binary-only add on 64bit drivers. Nvidia doesn't release chipset
documentation or free drivers, so we cannot directly support it.
Ciao Marco!
