Hi!

Since recieving my new pc in the early 2003, it came with an nforce2 motherboard (Abitt NF7-S - v 2.0). So, naturally, because i had no luck in using linux properly as a workstation (too slow machine) I got happy and tried instaling Redhat 9.0 and also SuSE. I installed redhat, and logged on to the KDE. The pre-login test program also said that my sound card and network card (both nforce2 integrated) are working properly and also played a few sounds. So I went to the KDE control center which said that there is no soundcard or a network card. So i did an autodetect. It detected the soundcard, but it was not supported. The network card was simply not found. I installed Suse, and had the same problems and also when booting up, the SuSE froze when it came to loading usb 2.0. Great. I managed to get into the SuSE KDE interface, and had the same problems. So I gave up for some time, seeking hjelp on the .net and yielded no results. A couple days ago I tried knoppix. with KDE. Guess what. Same problem.
So here I am asking anyone if they have any info on my problem?
I'd be very thankful for any help.

After the install of Linux on a NForce 2 machine, you need to install the Nforce motherboard drivers.

Here is the NVIDIA page ....

The instructions for install are here.
