2.4.21 correctly identifies Nforce2. I'm running it on ShuttleX w/
FN41 board. Be sure to download audio, network, & nvgart drivers from
www.nvidia.com & follow installation procedures which aren't difficult
but a pain in the ass - nvidia should give the source to the kernel
My FN41 also has geforce4 mx video onboard - getting nvidia's driver
to work has been a pain but it works finally. XFree's nv driver works
fine enough for straight 2d stuff so I almost gave up on nvidia's
driver, but looks like I may finally have it running.
