Installing Broadcom 440x Driver
I could really use some help installing the above driver. The situation is that I am a complete newbie to Linux and thought id give it a go and see what all the fuss is about. I've read various dummies guides and all the documentation I can find on Redhat 9.0, which I have installed, but nowhere in any of these books guides are there specific insructions for installing a device driver.
I have read various post relating to .rpm packages and tarball's whats all that about?
I think if I can crack installing this driver, then id be more inclined to leave redhat as my default OS and practice, instead of having to continue to use Windoze! I have a copy of Knoppix live and installation of this cd finds and installs the driver immediately.
If anyone's willing to spare the time could they explain to me step by step how to install this driver. I would be forever in your debt. Also if I'm using Plug and Play, how do I find the IRQ of the network card, I know the one windoze assigned to it, would this be the same IRQ in redhat 9.0?
p.s I did find a driver that had a double click to install file and i thought id cracked it but it couldnt find the "broadcom" directory.......!! go figure?
