This

cannot exec 'cc1plus'

means you didn't install your c++ compiler. Install all of the development packages, even the ones you don't think you'll need, you can always get rid of them later. Once that's done, try it again.
good luck.

It's possible the driver didn't build properly, without the errors, I nor anyone else will be able to help you. It could be simple like installing your kernel source or something.
good luck.

if I use red hat's network configuration, there is a device listed, but it's inactivated. and if i try to activate it, I just get "Cannot activate network device eth0".

Any suggestions?

What is the output from lspci -v, and lsmod, from the current configuration? I feel like we were pretty close to a solution on the first problem. Putting in another card, could cause a whole new set of problems. In any event, I'll stay in the thread, as long as you stay with me, until we find a solution.
good luck.

Ok, the old card is back again. When i put in the other, a configuration automatically started when linux were booting. This did not happen with this card. What should I do? The commands gices the same results as the last time.

when i typed "insmod FEALNX.O" (i must use caps in fealnx.o) finally something happened. but:

"The module you are trying to load (FEALNX.O) is compiled with gcc version 2 compiler, while the kernel you are running is compiled with a gcc version 3 compiler. This is known to not work.

i put the fealnx.o-file that came along with the downloaded drivers in the directory (usr/src/linux-2.4.18-14/net/inet)

I had that error once with a sound driver. I cannot recall how I solved it. At this point, I believe you've got two choices, one is upgrade all of your development packages to a gcc version 3 compatible compiler, or a kernel recompile with the current gcc.

The catch is if you recompile the kernel it would probably be simpler to enable support for you nic, than to go through all of this again.

Don't do anything yet, I seem to recall reading somewhere that you can edit the makefile to overcome this, but, I can't find it just yet. Let me get back to you, I'm going to investigate.
good luck.

I may have found something. This thread explains a process that may overcome the problem.
