What Linux distribution are you using, because your distro may already provide a pre packaged kernel?

What about trying the nforce chipset drivers from nvidia first, then worry about kernel compiling when you are more linux aware?

www.nvidia.com

I think they have good info on how to install. That should get the network and sound going. You just run the script as root.

A direct link is...

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0292.html

They have some readme info there which should get you going

You type that into the terminal, but make sure you are running as root when installing software, and make sure you are a normal user otherwise.

To become root from a normal user, type:

su

then type in your password when it prompts, then execute the installer.

after you are done, edit your XF86Config as appropriate and become the normal user by typing

exit

Just don't worry abut the XFree config. That's to do with the video driver. This is the nforce motherboard chipset driver... But do the su thing as stated.

Don't worry about editing your xf86config, I was being a moron as usual.
Sorry for being useless.

Nope, don't worry about the XFConfig. That's for when you install the nvidia video driver if you have a nvidia card and want 3D for games etc.
