What the? "make" gives strange errors on A7N8X-VM.


Running RedHat 9.0
Kernel 2.4.20-8
Onboard GFX, NIC and everything else.

I were going to get myself the nforce drivers I need to set up my lan. So in my blissfull newbieness I get the RPM' install them and find that they don't work. I run "modprobe nvnet" nothing, I run "insmod nvnet" nothing. And when I tried to uninstall the RPM's I get a bash telling me that the package is not installed. And yes I am root while doing this. I have some suspicions towards the key end of the keyboard, if you know what I'm saying.

So I figure the tar.gz should work. I download it and try to make(and I'm annoyed that there's no ./configure) I get a dungload of error.

Code:
[root@localhost nforce]# make
make -C  nvnet
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/nforce/nvnet'

Well then, I aska experienced friend of mine about this. He can't really figure it out either, but he figures it's just a small problem, but that it leads to more and more trouble. And then I get his nvnet.o file, since that's the one I am lacking, and since I already got a different file from him which worked like a charm. I put it in the appropriate location (/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o) change it's ownership to root and modprobe it. Still no good. I run insmod and it tells me that loading the module will taint my system.

If I had the money I would've just went and bought myself a new NIC, but I don't have the money so. *shrug*

What do you think is wrong?

Thanks for helping a ^_^

EDIT - Fixed some long lines that made the borders stretch,
