Default [debian] NForce - eth0 - K7N420

I installed the driver NFORCE
(NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0301-pkg1.run) on K7N420 for Debian 2.4.
Linux 2.4.27-2-386 #1 Thu Jan 20 10:55:08 JST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
These drivers, should support my ethernet adapter (MB integrated) on eth0. But i keep on getting the following error :

# modprobe nvnet 
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.27-2-386/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/2.4.27-2-386/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 
/lib/modules/2.4.27-2-386/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.27-2-386/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o failed 
/lib/modules/2.4.27-2-386/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: insmod nvnet failed  

Apparently only forcedeth loads.
Should i remove forcedeth?
Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

Had to move to kernel 2.6 and desactivate ACPI in Grub.
Now the nvnet module works :-)
