not able to install silan sc92031 pci ethernet adaptor on rhel 4 2.6.9-5.EL


i need loads of help as i am very new to linux, in installing silan sc92031 PCI Ethernet Adapter driver on rhel 4 2.6.9-5.EL which i have been trying to do myself for last 3 days.
I recently install this rhel 4 and after that i am not able to access internet, though earlier for the same machine i was using XP and win 98 and was able to access internet, but with rhel 4 m not able to do so.

i have the soft copy of the driver file that came with the NIC card.
it has following files:
װֲ.txt
readme.txt
Makefile
sc92031.c

Smile Solution For rhel sc92031 problem

Yup ndiswrapper doesnt work for it ,best alternative i found out is to install kernel 2.6.24 (vanilla) which recognizes the nic sc92031 easily and your network will work just fine

Kernel rpm location :
http://wiki.openvz.org/Download/kern....6.24-ovz008.1

Use:
rpm -ivh *.rpm
to install and reboot and enjoy
