Question DSL doesn't recognize my nic

MSI K8N Neo 4 Platinum
Athlon 64 3500+
Windows 2000 sp4

Cable modem-->Router-->Computer

USB--> Damn Small Linux

Source used:
althack *DOT COM* -->Device hacks-->usb device hacks-->How to run Linux on a USB drive

So I was checking out this Bio computer-on-a-stick (Fingergear *DOT COM*) and thought it was so cool. I wanted to make my own and followed the simple guide. I am not very familiar with linux, but everything looks good so far other than a few minor problems. The main one being, DSL is not recognizing my on board nic. This is the only computer I've tried it on, but I wanted to be able to stick it on any machine and have my own private computer (desktop settings/links/wallpaper) not to mention being able to utilze the computer's memory running faster on linux than windows.


1) How do I install a driver that will support my on board nic
(Nvidia nforce)?

2) Would you suggest using another distro for this application?

Did you compile your own kernel? If not try using your own, that way you can make sure your drivers are there. The nvidia nic should be supported.
