A7N8X-E delux motherboard

I have the same kinda mobo, but I'm runnin slackware.

Maybe you could just try a modprobe of the net module and see what happens.
For me slackware found the card on its own and uses the forcedeth module.
sooo from a console try:
modprobe forcedeth

For the gigabit NIC, i used the sk98lin module...which is what that marvell link PEACEDOG posted is.
That one will require a kernel recompile since the last i checked its a kernel patch.
But if the kernel is new enough the code might be in there already.

Oh I haven't been able to get both NIC's workin together tho, either I'm doin somethign wrong or something aint right...I already started a thread about that.

Or instead of all that you could also try the official Nvidia divers.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0283.html
That package also includes sound drivers which I havn't got to work either, hehe.

thanks for the suggestions dudes
ive left my computer in my room
where i go to uni for the weekend
so i'll have to try those things out
when i get back. i had a look at the
output of the commands /sbin/lspci -v
and lsmod and ifconfig -a. it does
appear that the adaptor is being
recognised. i just don't understand
why i cant select it when trying to
set up an internet connection. i am
surprised since redhat seems to
support everything else so easily.
it found the audio device fine during
installation and it works perfectly.
i didnt have to bother with drivers
at all! Oh yeah, could you tell me
what NIC stands for? sorry for my
ignorance. :-)
