Anybody kindly help me. I've downloaded a driver for my ethernet card but I don't know how to install it. I've read the readme.txt file that came with the download but there's no specific instruction on how to install it. thanks in advance.

if u dloaded a c file ull have to compile it first. the compilation instructions and flags will be provided alongwith the file. Once u get an .o file, u just have to insmod it without .o extension

insmod driver
In /etc/modules.conf, add the following line
alias eth0 driver

check if modules  has been inserted using lsmod
