Unhappy How do I compile Tulip c. for linksys Nc100 v2.1


I wish to install tulip c. into my caldera openlinux edesktop 2.4 operating system but I am not sure how to compile the driver as instructed to by this readme file which is on the floppy disk that came with the network card. Actually I have no programming experience at all. This is the instruction as follow's {****************************************************************************

Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet Adapter(NC100 v2)

Linux Driver Installation
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

****************************************************************************


A. Get source Code and produce a binary code
=============================================
Step 1 : Get the source code from the following site;

FTP://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/linux...rn-2.3/tulip.c
FTP://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/linux.../kern_compat.h

Step 2 : Compile the source code by using

"gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net/inet
-Wall -Wstrict -prototypes -O6 -c tulip.c
'[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo
-DMODVERSIONS`"



B. Installation guide using Slackware 3.XX
==========================================

Step 1 : Copy tulip.o into the latest kernel's modules:
cp tulip.o /lib/modules/2.0.XX/net/tulip.o
Where the XX is the version number of the latest kernel.

Step 2 : Modify /etc/rc.d/rc.modules:
Unmark the line /sbin/modprobe tulip

Step 3 : Reboot system:
reboot

Step 4 : when system boots, the driver will be load.

Step 5 : run netconfig to setup TCP/IP
(run 'ifconfig' or 'netstat -i' to see if there is a
interface 'eth0')



C. Installation guide using Redhat 5.XX
=======================================

Step 1 : Copy tulip.o into the latest kernel's modules:
cp tulip.o /lib/modules/2.0.XX/net/tulip.o
Where the XX is the version number of the latest kernel.

Step 2 : Update kernel's module dependencies:
/sbin/depmod -a

Step 3 : Check /etc/conf.modules:
alias eth0 tulip
options tulip options=X debug=X

Step 4 : Valid media types selections for options=X are:
0 Auto-select (default to the 10baseT link)
1 10base2
2 AUI
3 100baseTx
4 10baseT-FD
5 100baseTx-FD
6 100baseT4
7 100baseFx
8 100baseFx-FD
9 MII 10baseT
10 MII 10baseT-FD
11 MII (autoselect)
12 10baseT (no autoselect), v0.69 and later only
13 MII 100baseTx
14 MII 100baseTx-FD
15 MII 100baseT4

Step 5 : Valid debug levels for debug=X are:
1 normal output
2 more verbose
3 even more verbose
4 even more verbose
6 insanely verbose

Step 6 : Reboot system:
/sbin/shutdown -r now

Step 7 : when system boots, the driver will be load.

Step 8 : run netconfig to setup TCP/IP
(run 'ifconfig' or 'netstat -i' to see if there is a interface
'eth0')}

Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated. Tis.

For starters the files that you need are at http://www.scyld.com/tulip.html and http://www.scyld.com/tulip_devel.html , they are not on the floppy disk (but the windows drivers are ). The files that are listed in the help file you posted are there. But I don't know what to do from there besides trying to follow the instructions. I haven't tried it yet. I have the Fast Ethernet Adapter(NC100 v2) on an old machine that's currently running Red Hat 6.

Which Linux kernel verions does Caldera OpenLinux edesktop 2.4 have? Hopefully, you won't have to compile driver--try running:

modprobe tulip

as root.
