I have the ASRock board, too. I'm hoping the info in this thread will help me out when I get home and give it a try.

I cant get that makefile to work at all :'(

I get all these errors about "struct net_device has no member called xmit_lock"

it dumps about 8 of those errors and then does nothing. What am I doing wrong?

All I did to have the network card, sata and ide dma work is patch some files in the kernel 2.6.17.11 source.

Are you familliar with recompiling a kernel? What's the version of the kernel installed on your system right now?

I got a friend to walk me through downloading the 2.6.17.11 source, adding the lines to forcedeth.c and recompiling the kernel. But there's still no nForce network device in my Network Hardware list :'(

Mug,
You didn't state which distribution you were running. In some cases the distribution specific tools are pre-populated with specific hardware, and updating a driver isn't going to change that. You'll need to manually setup the ethernet interface.

Thanks,
Lonni

All you need to do is edit /etc/modprobe.conf:
alias eth0 forcedeth

and ensure that you have a valid /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file, once you have forcedeth installed & loaded.

Thanks,
Lonni

I think im just too new to all this linux stuff, getting MCP61 working in Fedora5Core is just having no luck with me, and i've tried lots of different suggestions from lots of #linux and #fedora rooms on IRC networks, but i'm just lost.

I'll wait for Core6, apparantly that's gonna have support built in.
