In your kernel config you probably also should have:
CONFIG_X86_UP_IOAPIC is not set

I was unsuccessful getting a 2.4.22 kernel to work properly and ended up using
2.4.20. After installing nVidia's nvgart patch, ethernet driver and
sound driver a number of problems with the nForce2 chipset got

usb is still a problem. I've been able to get a Sony clie to sync, but
intermittantly. Half the time usb doesn't register the device when
I try to hot sync. Plugging a webcam gets me log message that show the
webcam is noticed, but I don't get a useable device.

Try nVidia's ethernet driver for nForce2 chipset: nvnet.o
