kernel recompile ethernet options
I am trying to recompile my kernel and so far Im only having trouble with my network modules. I have nforce2 ethernet 10/100. I am using the Linux Kernel v2.6.5 Configuration tool. When I select the correct ethernet 100 option it asks me to choose my card below. I can't figure out what type of card it falls under - there is no nforce option. I'm not very knowledgable about hardware.
Thanks for any help.

It is forcedeth open source module (reverse engeneering)
Else use the proprietary nvnet module, available at

cool thanks for the quick reply :) one more question... if i install the driver from the nvidia sight, will it become an option in the kernel configuration tool, or will i need to load it manually.
thanks again

As for nvidia video driver, the compilation and installation of
the module is simple, you download the nforce driver package
(ia32 for 32 bits intel/AMD processors or AMD64 for AMD 64bits)
Then you just execute it and follow the on screen instructions
