Default A7N8X, Mandrake 9.1, network problems

Can anyone help me, why tells me the Mandrake, that the Nforce2 MCP is not a valid ethernet card ?

Were there any errors associated with installation of those drivers?

Well, yes, but it installed itself.
It said, it's not qualified, or something like that, but it installed itself, but only with the original nvidia drivers, the ASUS drivers were totally incompatible.
If you need, i reinstall it to see, what does it writes

I found that the RPM version of the Network card driver is not compatable with Mandrake 9.1

What I did was first install the RPM version, the sound driver works fine.

Then I installed the source version, (but only the network driver)

Used modprobe to start the services and i was up and running. The only snag was the computer was set to DHCP and I forgot I disabled it.
