Unhappy Debian & E1000


Hello all. I am new to this world of Debian so I am needing a little help. I have three "future" routers. All of the machines are SuperMicro SuperServer 5013C-T with Intel P4 proc and Intel E1000 NIC's. I have successfully loaded RH9 on one of the machines and used the Intel provided driver (following their instructions) and got it up and running on the network. On one of the other machines I have loaded Debian 3.0 (Woody) and need to do the same. When I try and run "make install" from the e1000 src directory it says, " kernel source not found. stopping". Now I looked at the code in Makefile and it doesn't appear to be pointing to exactly the correct location (I think). It probably comes from my inexperience with Debian and the location of the kernel. Has someone else had this problem or can you tell me how to do a work around to get the e1000 loaded for Debian? Thanks in advance for any help and assistance.

Hi,

e1000 is supported in the kernel. You need to install debian, put the kernel sources on the same drive in /usr/src and then compile the kernel with support for e1000. After this you should be able to see your network card.

Okay, I'm REALLY new at debian and I understand what you are saying but I don't have a clue how to do that. Is there some link or tutorial that would walk a newbie like me through that? Thanks for your help too!!
