Network drivers for new hardware...?

I installed Linux on my new PC, and sadly for most of my hardware there are no drivers. Since it is an older version (Suse 8.0) that's not surprising and as soon as I am able to I plan on downloading the newest updates...

But, so far I haven't found a driver for my network card (I have dsl). My motherboard is Gigabyte 8INXP with onboard network (Intel 81540EM). So my question: Does anyone know a location to download rpms for this board/network card? Thanks!

Used the e1000 module which should already be included in the latest kernel that comes with Redhat.

Might not be compiled but a quick recompile of the kernel adds your support, etc.
