Unhappy Abit nForce2 ethernet controller under SuSE 9.0?

Just upgraded my motherboard to an Abit AN7. SuSE 9.0 recognised some new hardware, but the ethernet controller is not responding. If I look under YaST2 Hardware Info the Abit nForce2 ethernet controller is recognised but Drive/modules/active is No. YaST2/Network devices/Network card is configured as an 'Ethernet Network Card' (there is no entry in the list of known devices for anything resembling the Abit nForce2) . The ethernet card fails to set up on initial boot, but the connect light is on at the router so I don't think there's a hardware issue.

Is this natures way of telling me to upgrade to SuSE 9.2, or is there a way around this?
