nVIDIA nForce ethernet in Redhad 9

I am having a problem getting my ethernet adapter to work in redhat 9.0. i have an nVIDIA nForce ethernet edapter built on to a MSI MS-6367 motherboard. i tried the rpm from nVIDIA's website, but it did not work. i researched the problem and found that I should get the .src.rpm from nVIDIA and rebuild it. I tried this and installed it, but when i rebooted my computer, i got the following during the boot process:

Bringing up interface eth0:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable

I tried manually configuring my network with the IP info i got from windows. Any help on this would be appreciated.

note: kernel version 2.4.20-8, athlon processor

get the tar.gz file for the nvidia chipset, extract it, then as root, make and the make install once it's done do modprobe nvnet then yo should be able to configure the the network. It workls on two nvidia based boards I have.

still doesnt work

i did it on a fresh install of redhat 9, but it still doesnt work. i also tried bypassing my cable router and plugging directly into the modem, that didnt work either. wondering if it has something to do with plug-and-play BIOS, but i cant get to bios on my comp. i have an hp pavilion 522c. pressing del or delete keys on startup doesnt talke me to bios. any ideas on that or anything else to help?
