Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've done all the basic tests in the terminal everything points to linux simply not detecting eth0, furthermore the ethernet port lights up and is definitely working. So, I'm pretty sure all I need is the proper driver. However, linuxdrivers.org points me to the Intel download center and I'm unable to figure out what driver I need to download from them.
By the way none of the advice in the thread helped. I previously used lsmod, ifconfig -a and other tests I can't remember and it didn't show up. I always got an error message along the lines of eth0 no such device.
Can someone either point me to another location of the driver, or help me find it on the intel website? I've googled everywhere and found nothing.
Me neither. Granted you found the ALX driver yourself, which is good, but you rather talk about things and running commands rather than posting exact output. When asked you post incomplete output and when the instructions say you should run certain commands you make up your own. Most build processes will tell you if they exited OK and else they can save nfo to post with for example 'make [whatever args] 2>&1 | tee /tmp/log', tools like modprobe have switches like "--verbose", "--dry-run" and "--show-depends" to display diagnostics and dmesg often contains clues.
