Question Anyone have a good tutorial on how to install NIC drivers?

Anyone have a good tutorial on how to install NIC drivers?

This driver matches my kernel number. Trying to install it for the two Yukon chips on board.
Kernel 2.6.x Linux Driver Install Package for Yukon Devices
install_v10.92.1.3.tar.bz2

I have no idea where to start. Any help would be great.

Thanks!
Alfa

When ever I try tar xvjf install_v10.92.1.3.tar.bz2

I get this:
Code:
tar (child): bzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Edit got it:
Code:
DriverInstall
functions
install.sh
README
sk98lin.4
sk98lin.tar.bz2

Probably a corrupted/incomplete download.

cd to the directory with the extracted files and enter:
Code:
less README
...or just go ahead and run the installer as root:
Code:
sudo ./install.sh
Read the README and search your distro's package system for the driver and consider using that one if it works.
