See my previous post. Check the bug reports for forcedeth for more
info. After use on WinXP you must power off for a few minutes, or
nothing works on Linux.

I have the same nVidia MCP51 setup. It's a bummer, but the kernel
developers are rather slow aboutadopting fixes for forcedeth. I'm
pretty sure you need a very late 2.6.17 kernel to cure the problem.
I'm just avoiding WinXP for the time being.
