Redhat 9 nvidia nic install
 
Hello everyone....I am new to linux struggling to get my Nic going so I can get my cable
modem connected...
I am using Redhat9 with an AMD athlon XP + processor. kernal: 2.4.20-6.
I downloaded from nvidia the src.rpm: NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0269.src.rpm
but when I attempt to build the rpm I get an error. I type in:

rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0269.src.rpm

It attempts to build but I get these errors at the end:

make[1]: *** [nvnet.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/nforce/nvnet'
make: *** [nvnet_make] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.96301 (%build)

RPM build errors:
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.96301 (%build)


Any ideas? Please help a disgusted windows user that wants to become a Linux guy!!!
Thanks a lot. - T
