OK I'm not sure this will help you as you are already using the FORCEDETH option, but these are the Nforce2 specific options (well some of the USB ones aren't strictly nforce2 specific) that I enabled in the Kernel to get my hardware working under 2.6.7. Using GConfig:
ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support ->
PCI IDE Chipset ->
AMD & Nvidia IDE Support - BLK_DEV_AMD74XX (Y)
Networking Support ->
Network Device Support ->
Ethernet (10 or 100mbit) ->
Reverse Engineered nForce Ethernet Support - FORCEDETH (Y)
USB Support ->
Support for Host-side USB - USB (Y)
USB device filesystem - USB_DEVICEFS (Y)
-> USB Host Controller Drivers (Y)
EHCI HCD (USB 2.0) Support - USB_EHCI_HCD (Y)
OHCI HCD Support - USB_OHCI_HCD (Y)
USB Printer support - USB_Printer (Y)
USB Mass Storage Support - USB_Storage (Y)
USB Human Interface Device (Full HID) Support - USB_HID (Y)
HID Input Layer Support - USB_HIDINPUT (Y)
-> /dev/agpgart (AGP Support) - AGP (Y)
NVIDIA nforce/nForce2 chipset support - AGP_NVIDIA (M)
NForce3 works with the 2.6.7 kernel and so does the forcedeth driver, that is on my machine it does. I don't remember the exact options I used, it took me some 5 or 6 tries to get it all right. You can use my .config if you want to.
There is one but, though, it's configured for an AMD64 / Hammer processor, the AGP setting is also configured for AMD64 AGP, so you might have to change that too, if you decide to use it.
