I have perhaps found a driver that should support the nVidia Ethernet
integrated LAN, atleas accoring to this message:

And now comes the really newbiequiz I think:
How do I add this driver to my system, I have never ever compiled a
kernel and hope I won't ever have to. But I will probably manage to do
it if forced.

Hopefully there's some dynamic modules for this or so...
