Anyone got any ideas on which network module to use? I can't seem to find one that works...

Wanting to install via FTP, so need a base driver that comes shipped with 9.1.

Use the pcnet32 driver. It's definitely on the boot.iso image that you can download from SuSE's ftp server, and very likely also on the floppy images that are on the CDs/DVD.

I was having the same problem. I'm running ver 4.5.2.  I've checked out a few discussions and they say to load a vmnet module, but no one will ellaborate.  The pcnet driver seemed to work fine for me.  THANKS!!!
