Forcedeth only works as a module with 2.6.6

I have just installed the 2.6.6 kernel on a system built with lfs. Forcedeth for nforce only seems to work when I compile it as a module and then modprobe it. When it is compiled as a driver eth0 doesn't exist.

I am not sure what I am missing and any help would be great!


( Sorry if in wrong forum, wasn't sure where this belongs )

Is having forcedeth compiled as a module a problem? Add forcedeth to the list of modules that should be loaded on boot (whatever means of automatic module loading you have on LFS) and that should pretty much be it.

yes, that is what I am doing now, however this doesnt answer why it isn't loading when compiled in. I am trying to find if I am doing something obvious wrong, ie: missing a line in a config file somewhere?

I would like to write my own init scripts as well, can anyone refer me to a good sys v style init tutorial.
