I am trying to install a qlogic hba card on a fedora 10 running on a 64 bit machine. The hba card model that I need to install is  QLA2340 and the link to the driver installer and specification is:

The hba card is an FC 2gb/s

Please, can some one help me with the installation of the drivers for the hba card?

I downloaded driver version as this seem appropriate.  I decompressed the tgz directory on my desktop and then opened a Terminal on the root directory. I navigated to the decompressed file on the Desktop. Then, I entered the installation file name and clicked enter. Then, I get the message Must be root to install....

[delbin@DNS /]$ cd home/delbin/Desktop/qlafc-linux-
[delbin@DNS qlafc-linux-]$ ./qlinstall
Must be root to install...
[delbin@DNS qlafc-linux-]$

How can I install the drivers for this card successfully?

You have to either open your terminal as the root user, or if you are allowed to sudo, start the installation using sudo:

sudo ./qlinstall

you might ass well get a root access in a terminal uccess with sudo with a command such as :

sudo su -

and you are root now you can compile it anway you want.
