nForce2 MAC network chip not working on RHL Enterprise ES
I have a Biostar M7NCG-400 mainboard with the Nvidia Nforce2 chipset having onboard audio/video and LAN.
I am running RHL Enterprize Linux (ES) on the box dual-booted with Win XP. During install of Linux, the LAN chip was not detected (obviously) - I installed
the drivers from the Nvidia website(used RHL 9 drivers as Enterprise drivers are not available) and it was detected and configured as NVnet. So far so good.....
But thats as far as I got. The eth0 device cannot be activated. I used the Redhat-Config-Network command and got the following results:
- in the "Network Configuration" tab:-
Description Type Device Status
----------- ------ -------- ---------
nvnet Ethernet eth0 Configured
- and in the "Devices" tab:-
I click on activate (or type: "service network start" in a term) and get the following error: "nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying
My modules.conf file shows the following line: "alias nvnet eth0", but lsmod does not show me this module.
The LAN chip works fine on windows XP on the same box. What could the problem???

Crap. I have the exact same error on an ASUS A7N8X-VM with Redhat 9.0 Workstation. "nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization". I'm such a linux n00b that I know not how to troubleshoot.
Hardware is proven to operate correctly under Windows.
I used to drive a Heisenberg, but whenever I'd glance at the speedometer, I'd get lost.
