setting up a network card

How do you compile a network driver file if a compiler was not loaded when first installed linux. Are there any network drivers for linux.
1 Solution
Go back and install the compiler.  In order to use a network card that is not included with your kernel, you need to build a new kernel and/or a kernel module for that network card.  Either case is fairly easy and documented in the different HOW-TO documents but does require the C compiler and the kernel source.
