Sorry forgot to mention: I'm running FC6 with the 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 x86_64 
RPM says that it is based on:

I tried to upgrade to the forcedeth driver that is supplied with 2.6.20-rc4-mm1
but that gave results that look like Tobias' description.

Then I downloaded the Nvidia provided version from:

The forcedeth driver from this file announces itself as:

Version 0.60-Driver Package V1.21.

After some minor patching I got this to work with the FC6 2.6.19-1.2895 kernel
