Nvnet + Core 1

Just done fresh install of Core 1 replacing my RH9 without any probs, but I don't have any internet connection.

I'm relatively new to linux ('bout a month) and I had to install the nforce drivers under RH9 to get my NIC working (it's on-board with my gigabyte mobo) and I had some problems with nvnet.

Please has anyone done this for Core 1 ?
What do I have to download ? and how do I install it ?

Found some notes I had

downloaded the source RPM from Nvidia's web site, then installed them

Got error message about tainting the kernel !! but the nvnet driver is working.

If anyone can enlighten me about "tainting". I think it's a bit like windows and there "certified" drivers perhaps ??

Thanks Chaps.
