nforce-net and nforce-audio not working on gentoo

I have a ASUS A7N8X Deluxe and I am using the onboard lan and audio.
I emerged nforce-net and nforce-audio, have hotplug installed, and I think I have everything in /etc configured.
But I still get 1) errors loading nvaudio while booting 2) Can't do anything with the internet 3) Can't even access anything on the lan.

The net works when I boot off the live cd...

Kernel is 2.4.20 gaming kernel customized to have mtrr (I think) support.

Sorry if I can't post much details but you can guess how hard it is to do something in linux memorize it reboot to windows and come here to post it.

If someone can help me with the net I can start posting answers to your questions using links.

Any ideas???

BTW: I am using the nforce net controller NOT the 3com one.

How do I find out which /dev thingy my device is plugged into?? IE Mouse, monitor, and video card.

I had this exact same problem on gentoo w/ the same kernel. I have your exact same board. Here's what I did... I went to and downloaded their NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz file (Download Drivers | nForce Drivers | Unified Driver | Linux | OK) and untarred it. Then I went into the 'nforce' directory it created, and typed 'make', then 'make install'. After you do that, you have to go into the 'nvnet' and 'nvaudio' directories and type 'insmod nvnet.o' and 'insmod nvaudio.o' respectively. After that, you have to goto the '/etc/modules.d' directory as root, and add the following lines to your '/etc/modules.d/aliases' file:

# the following is eth1 because the 3com card defaults to eth0
alias eth1 nvnet
alias audio nvaudio

Save the file, then reboot, and you're set. Good luck.
