Question nvidia ethernet on kernel 2.6.0

Well, with the release of the new 2.6.0 kernel, i'm sure that many of you will be busy compiling away. I'm a total newbie, and having troubles getting patches for my onboard ethernet card, on an msi k7n2 to work with the 2.6.0 kernel. I'm aware of the foredeth patches, but they're only available for 2.6.0-test kernels, does anybody have any suggestions for where to get patches for the new kernel and how to update em?

many thanks!

thanks bunches for the quick reply- i had already downloaded the kernel, and the problem is that it doesnt come with the drivers for an nforce based onboard ethernet card which is what i've got... also, i use slackware, and not sure how to use rpm files!
