How do I configure this video driver package?


I'm running Vector Linux 5.9 Lite which is Slackware. Hardinfo shows my wireless USB adapter, and I have its Linux Realtek driver package but I don't know how to install it. The packet contents are as follows:

ieee80211
rtl8187
wpa_supplicant-0.5.3
ifcfg-wlan0
make drv
release-notes
wlan0dhcp
wlan0down
wlan0rmv
wlan0up

Anyone know how I compile this into the necessary driver and install it. I'm new to Slackware? Thanks.

No readme files?
Where did you get the package from?
