    Thanks for pointing this out, they seem to have removed the module reference
    counting. But really, I don't care whether it can unload or not. I just need
    it to work. I'm not really interested in perfecting a quick hack to a
    proprietary driver.

    Ah, so THATS who they licensed it from. I didn't think nividia would go to the
    bother of designing their own ethernet hardware. I'll have a poke about and
    see if I can find anything out about the MAC address
