Yep -- no driver in the loaded kernel for that device.
Visiting my favourite hardware vendor's web pages reveals this
pointe to a test of this motherboard
and there it says:
nVidia MAC with Realtek 8201BL supports 10 Mb/s and 100 Mb/s
I don't think we have a driver for that in our source tree at the
moment. Short-term I guess your best bet is to use a standalone
ethernet card. Yes, this will claim your single PCI slot...
