nvnet drivers...HELP!

Hi all. I am having some fun getting my nic to work. I have an ASUS A7N8x-VM board. Fedora core 1 has no support for the nic. (core 2 does!)

I need the sources for the all-in-one driver...but Nvidia doea not provide them. Does anybody have an answere? I cannot use core 2.

Thanks. I finally figured this out. All ASUS does is repackage the nvidia force driver by compiling for various kernels. This leads to problems of kernel compatibility. Why they do not make the source available, I do not know. Nvidia does provide the source.
Recompiling worked fine.
