6-current might work better on the motherboard than 5-stable due to the
new way that we do timecounters.  I know that that's the case for my
nforce4 motherboard.  The nvidia MAC will require the 'nv' ethernet 
driver that can be found in the sys tree in 6-current (or the ports tree
for 5-stable).  I've tried to use this with my board, but it screws up
badly in the PHY attachment code and winds up panicing when you first
try to bring the interface up.  I haven't gotten very far with debugging
it, unfortunately.  The firewire controller will probably work fine.
Feel free to bug me if you have any questions.
