Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Also.. I know this guy on this forum who had exactly the same problem as me, but he just updated to 2.4.25 and the nvidia worked =/ so.... should i just do that coz i know it works, or will 2.6.6 support it was well ?
All that has happened here is that, then you installed RH, you didn't install the kernel sources.
What you will have to do is to compile the kernel without any template to work from. This is a bit of a pity, but it won't be a big problem.
As soon as you type "make menuconfig", you can start choosing what to install into your kernel.
I suggest that you go through all of these (it will take you about 20mins) and choose the ones which you think will be correct. Most impotantly, choose this one:
Device Drivers --> Networking Support --> Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit) --> Reverse Engineered nForce Ethernet support (EXPERIMENTAL)
This is the forcedeth module which you need. Make this as a module. WHen you have done everything in the page I sent you, ie, you have make your kernel, then do:
and you will have workign networking.
The great think with linux is that, if you screw up your kernel recomile, your system will still be bootable as long as you have another kernel. So, dont' delete your current working kernel.
Wow, quick reply, but you should really hear teh whole story - through the process my CD drive LITERALLY chewed up my windows XP disc into little bits. No I'm left with no Win XP disc - Phew, I'm glad I reinstalled it . Stupid windows. Damn it all, IT ALL. Do you have MSN Messenger ? :P
