Nvidia Nforce2 ethernet (nvnet) not working in RH9
I've got an Nforce2 motherboard (Abit NF7-S) and I've tried installing the Nvidia driver in Red Hat 9 several times, both the latest version and the one before it, and while all the other devices seem fine, the nvnet driver never has worked. For whatever reason the driver can't seem to communicate with the hardware; the error is always "...does not seem to be present, delaying initialization." It worked fine in Windows, so the hardware itself is fine.
So far I have tried removing and reinstalling the RPM, I've checked to make sure the /etc/modules.conf has the correct alias, and I've tried to use the source RPM (can't get that to work). After reading a few similar threads on this forum I've tried to run modprobe a few times to see what happens, but it's not in the path and I can't find it.
Any help would be appreciated... (by the way this is Red Hat 9 "out of the box," no kernel updates or anything yet).
