So do you (or anyone) have any suggestions for what to do? This is aI would propose that as the first step: If this fails, then you can try
to get support from NVidia.
reasonably new motherboard (I don't think it has any new firmware
versions out yet) and this leaves me dead in the water---all I can do
at this point is to just try the nVidia drivers and hope they work
better than forcedeth.
From you description it doesn't look like a bug directly in the
forcedeth driver: Perhaps a problem with a shared interrupt, or the vesa
bios uses an area for I/O and the ethernet registers are remapped on top
of the vesa registers.
Could you post lspci -vxx from both before and after loading forcedeth.
Or try bios settings that sound like Plug-N-Play aware OS. Or try ACPI
instead of APM (I've seen a boot log that contains both acpi and apm -
which one do you use? Try to boot with "acpi=off", "pci=noacpi", etc.)
