assuming u installed it correctly following README or INSTALL file
the file will be under
/lib/modules/2.4.20-ac2/kernel/drivers/
somewhere

find out what the module file name is..
and modprobe filename(without .o)

u can add the command (modprobe filename)
to some init file..
it seems that the file to be modified seems to differ among distros

maybe u can add

alias eth0 filename

to /etc/modules.conf or /etc/conf.modules
