Question nvnet and NF7-s2g

Hi,

Here's my hardware
NF7-S2G motherboard
Athlon XP 2700
2x512 kingston ram
2x3Com Corporation|3c905B 100BaseTX

My problem is that when I try to insmod nvnet the Mandrake 9.2 gives following error:

Using /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
See http://www.tux.org/lkml/#export-tainted for information about tainted modules
/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg.

I have tried the following things.
First I checked that the internal lan is swithed on from the BIOS.
second I tried to run NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0292-pkg1.run installer
with the pre made package and the compiling version, but it gives the following error:
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvnet.o'. This is most likely because
the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files. Please
make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel; on
Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source'
rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source files are
installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
I have the kernel source installed
following outputs from the commands

uname -r
2.4.22-10mdk

rpm -qa |grep -i kernel
kernel-source-2.4.22-10mdk
kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk

The Ethernet card shows up at the lspcidrake as unknown ethernet

So I did the following I used the nvidia installion program to install the nvaudio driver and extracted the installation package.
I did
make clean
make
make install
then I edited /etc/modules.conf
to add alias eth2 nvnet
and typed insmod nvnet
Thats when it all went SOUTH.

Can somebody help me please?
Thank you so much in advance!

and finally my dmesg
alias eth0 3c59x
alias eth1 3c59x
alias eth2 nvnet
alias sound-slot-0 nvsound
probeall usb-interface usb-ohci ehci-hcd
probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi

Default Re: nvnet and NF7-s2g

Grand, the NF7-S2G doesnot have a nvidia ethernet card it has a via one. So installed via drivers and all was well.
