Complete Newbie Question - Tulip Network Driver


Ok I just installed Rehdat Fedora today and I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing quite frankly. Basically I'm trying to get my internet working on that box but my network card uses the Tulip network driver which isn't included in Fedora. I downloaded tulip.c but I have absoultely no idea what to do with it. It says to compile it and copy it into the kernel or something? I tried running the commands in the terminal that it gave me in the instructions but they don't work. The command the instructions say to use it the "gcc ..." but when I try to run that command it says not found or whatever. Can anyone help me out?
Thanks

hi TaaDow, welcome to lq. w/that said, have you tried to modprobe the tulip driver, i believe (i could be wrong) that this diver is part of the kernel, not the distro. in any event, post the output of the following commands here

lspci -v

lsmod

ifconfig -a

all issued as root or su

the output from these should shed some light on the actual chipset your working with, and, the drivere that needs to be loaded.

thanks for your reply. I ran those commands but I don't really know what i'm looking for. it just says my ethernet controller is unknown, and then the list of mods tulip isn't there so what now?
