    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!

    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.
