I'm trying to install on a Gigabyte M61PM-S2. that card works well, but uses 
some chipsets that are only supported in the latest kernels.

Network is such a chipset, it's an nvidia nForce 430 chipset that "uses" a 
Realtek RTL8211 PHY that, apparently, does not require drivers (if I 
understand it rignt it's the nvidia part that has drivers.

Now the problem I don't understand:

I've installed from the 2007.0 minimal install CD, using a stage 3. net-setup 
finds the card and configures it. It says it uses the forcedeth module. And 
it works perfectly, with fast downloads.

After compiling a kernel (I've used genkernel) and a succesful reboot I have 
the following situation:

the forcedeth module is loaded
revolv.conf and /etc/conf.d/net seem to be OK. They look just the same as 
those on my other machine running Sabayon.
If I ping the local IP there is no problem
but I can't ping any computer on my network, nor can I ping my gateway

It can't be the crad itself, as it works when I  use the install CD. So where 
should I look to find the answer?
