NC7170 under SLES-9

Anyone have any luck getting the NC7170 NIC working on an rx4640 running SLES-9? I found the driver on the HP site, compiled it, but when I attempt to load the module (insmod e1000), I get the following in dmesg....

e1000: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
e1000: unsupported module, tainting kernel.
Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - version 5.4.11a-NAPI
Copyright (c) 1999-2004 Intel Corporation.

Also, there's no eth# device generated by the module load.

Any help?

Nevermind it turns out the onboard NIC is the one that's causing problems, not the NC7170.
