Yes, I did. I think you must simply replace your old via-rhine.c with the new one you have downloaded and then recompile the kernel with "VIA Rhine" support. Your new via-rhine.c will then be compiled as a part of a new kernel.

In /usr/src/linux do
make xconfig
make dep
make bzImage
make modules modules_install

then
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinux-2.x.x
cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.x.x
ln -sf /boot/System.map-2.x.x /boot/System.map

edit /etc/lilo.conf and create a complete entry for your new kernel. Don't trow away your old ones lilo entries yet, first see if the new one works. Dito for the System.map and vmlinuxes in /boot.

This all is far more elaborately explained in the Kernel-HOWTO. The hardest part is probably make xconfig, if you never did that before. It will help if you know all details of your present configuration.

The file "via-rhine.c" has always been part of the kernel source distribution. I've got one here:
/usr/src/linux/drivers/net/via-rhine.c

I think you're supposed your to replace your old via-rhine.c with the new one you have downloaded and then recompile the kernel with "VIA Rhine" support (CONFIG_VIA_RHINE).
