Realtek 8111/8168 LAN Driver will not install on RHEL4.5


hi all,

im having trouble installing an onboard Realtek network card to RHEL4.5. the board is a Gigabyte P35 DS3,

http://www.giga-byte.com.tw/Support/...me=GA-P35-DS3P

i went to the realtek site and found the drivers i need, but when i follow the instructions on the readme file, it will not install. i unpacked the tarball, cd'd into the dir, make clean modules, make install, and both came up with errors. anyone help?
