Nvidia nForce Ethernet Drivers

I am running Mandrake 9.2 and trying to install the ethernet drivers for linux. I am dual booting with the computer with Windows and Linux and I am stuck with installing the drivers on Mandrake. I first of all downloaded the file "NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz" from the website that came in the manual with the ASUS NFORCE2 Motherboard. Then i put this file onto a floppy, switched to the linux OS and moved the file from the floppy to my home folder. Then i did the command "tar -xvzf NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz", which worked successfully. After that i followed the instructions and changed directories to nforce. Next, i tried to use the command "make" which error'ed like crazy. I managed to copy and paste the commands to a text file and load it to my other server. You can view it at if it would help in resolving the problem. It includes all commands starting at the "tar -xvzf NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz". Also, what i didn't include there was that i tried to do the "make" command as root. It looked to me to be the same errors though.
