  Alright, then how do I include the network card modules when i do a kernel
  I have the source for for the nvidia NIC, do i just dump the .o into some
directory and "make menuconfig" will pick it up?

      Now the problem is that for the life of me I cannot get the onboard
NIC to work with the ctx kernel.
      The nic was working fine, i just installed the rpm and that installed
the modules.
      When I install the new kernel and try to reinstall teh rpm, or source
rpm, or even straigth from the source i get problems.
      Now why does this not work?
      Anyone I am despirate!

      I'm not a kernel expert but I've been in your situation before.
      I had the same problem with SIS network cards.

      The pre compiled kernel doen't have very many nic drivers either
compiled in or set to load as modules, hence you're problem.

      The fix is to get the kernel source, patch it, create your .config
with your own nic drivers included, and recompile.

      It's worked for me several times in the past but I still can't get
ext3 working on my own system despite the fact that I didn't mess with those
settings in any of the kernel builds in the past. (That's my own personal
unresolved bug btw :-))
