Please share what drivers and the specific files you tried. Stating that you tried them all is not very useful to those who might help you. Describe the installation and configuration procedure you attempted and what if any documentation you followed. Also, without specific messages or errors from the kernel regarding modules there is little anyone can suggest other than "search google". Post real output, if you don't know where to look for that try starting in /var/log/boot.log, /var/log/dmesg, and /var/log/messages.

Default same problem

I got the same problem. I have ASUS with nForce 2 chipset and two network cards on board. Unfortunatly i have to use NVIDIA card instead of 3com, and of course fedora doesn't detect this card. I tried to install drivers from nvidia site, but it didn't help. What should i do?

sorry bout that ill say what files i grabbed then what i did then list the two errors i get

the redhat 9.0 rpm-just double clicked let it install reboot still nothing
the tar.gz unified driver file- unzipped to /usr/src then put the files also in all kernel folders

the error messages
1nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present delaying initialization (with profile checked)
2Sbin/Ifup is not configured
Ifup<Device> has not been configured (without profile checked)
Okay i go over to the hardware and the card says its configured
I have to use dhps because i use comcast cable isp
and there seems to be no host or dns and whenever i try to configure those even after saving they will not stay.
im totally lost on this any more info needed just ask
and i apologize for the lack of information henceforth

Here is the official readme, it describes installation and is linked from the downloads page.
http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/n..._1.0-0261.html

Verify you have the following packages installed:
kernel-source
kernel
gcc32

The kernel and kernel-source should have precisely matching version numbers, if they don't go get the appropriate source.

As suggested in the readme you should use the SRPM (source rpm) to rebuild a binary rpm for your system. Get it, then rebuild it with these commands (capitalize CC, it matters):
export CC=gcc32
rpmbuild --rebuild packagename.src.rpm

When it is done the rpm will be found at /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/.
There will be several lines in the output of the rebuild near the end that state what binary packages were created; the lines start with "Wrote: ".

Install the package, then manually check whether then module configuration files were changed. The readme above describes the change in /etc/modprobe.conf. After that verify that the module will load:
/sbin/modprobe nvnet

If it fails look in /var/log/messages for some indication why it failed. When this module is available and inserted into the kernel the setup should continue as you've been doing.
