After un-gzipping and un-tarring, view the README file for installation instructions. It hasn't worked 100% for me yet, but it's alot better than the error messages I was getting ("can't load module e1000", "missing kernel or user mode driver e1000").
initially i was using an older 5.5.x version which had worked elsewhere. but now i installed the latest (18.104.22.168) one and still the same effect. i get no errors/messages during neither the "make install", nor the "insmod e1000". but when restarting the /etc/init.d/network then it will fail.
i even replced the card with another one in case this was a hardware problem, but no improvement.
i have no idea where the problem could be. i specifically bought this card cause it worked so easily and well before.
