I am extremely happy to report that I have now gotten the ONBOARD LAN/Ethernet working on both my desktop and laptop.. As they are both NFORCE 430 LAN's.. Still trying to get the Ralink wireless to work for the laptop though.. Below is the method that I used to get the NFORCE 430 to work..
This looks like a lot, but really you just chown it to root, chmod it to 755, turn off debugging in Info.plist, copy it to /System/Library/Extensions, clear your kextcache, and reboot.
1. Download Colonel's forcedeth-nockd.kext to your Dekstop.
2. Open Terminal from Applications/Utilities and type the following:
o cd ~/Desktop
o sudo chown -R root:wheel forcedeth-nockd.kext/
o sudo chmod -R 755 forcedeth-nockd.kext/
o sudo /Applications/TextEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/TextEdit forcedeth-nockd.kext/Contents/Info.plist
3. Look for: <key>Debug</key> and then change <true /> (directly below the Debug line) to <false />
4. File -> Save | File -> Quit
5. Go back to Terminal and type: sudo kextload -v forcedeth-nockd.kext/
6. Open System Preferences and choose Network. It should detect your network card and obtain an IP
7. Browse the web to make sure your connection is working
8. Finally, install the kext and clear your kextcache by opening Terminal and typing:
o sudo cp -R forcedeth-nockd.kext /System/Library/Extensions
o sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions
Note: If you have any problems use: sudo kextunload forcedeth-nockd.kext/
