Default Ethernet / forcedeth not working on NF430

Abit NF-M2 with NF430 onboard gigabit port is not working. Is this a forcedeth version issue? I'm using the one in 2.6.18 and don't know of a more current one.

uname -a:
Code:
Linux htpc2 2.6.18-gentoo-r3 #4 SMP Fri Dec 8 09:51:37 EST 2006 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
relevant dmesg clip:

Default Re: Ethernet / forcedeth not working on NF430

What does 'not working' mean?

Default Re: Ethernet / forcedeth not working on NF430 - SOLVED

ifconfig didn't show eth0 and I couldn't ping anything.

In the end it was some kind of install problem. I did a clean make of the kernel and it works now. Evidently I had some problem with the forcedeth build.

Thanks!
