How did you "mount the floppy"?

mount /dev/floppy /mnt/floppy

Since im running mandrak it automaticly mounts it
How do i use the file on the disk to update the driver so i can get this card installed? And once the card is installed how can i get it set up on the network i have existing?

You want to cd i.e change directory to the floppy drive. With MDK it is /mnt/floppy. Therefore

cd /mnt/floppy

So what does the install text file tell you to do next?

What is the model of the network card for reference?

The Model Number is DFE-530TX+, Its a D-Link PCI card. this is suposed to be what i do[]
$ cd floppy
$ cp rtl8139.c /root(or any temp directory)
$ cd /root
$ gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`

The driver you downloaded is the one for windows not linux.

well now i just feel like an idiot, lol once i get the correct driver I
$ cd /mnt/floppy
cp rtl8139.c /root
cd /root
gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`
[enter]
$ insmod rtl8139.o

and that should all work?

next i need to configure the network properties, where do i do that? and lastly once the network does work how can i set up file and printsharing between mandrake and windows 95?

I am not to familar with RH but it does have a network config GUI utility.

File and printsharing is accomplished via samba. If you did not select it during install go back and install the RPM from the CDs. Documentation can be found at www.samba.org
