OK, I MAY NOT BE RIGHT about all this, this is my humble effort at solving your problem, see and tell me whether it helps...
If you clicked the file on your CD and it opened in gcc it should be a .c file. This means you have to compile it.
Copy it to your hard disk, then:
on the command line.
This will leave you with a .o file somewhere which is your driver which needs to be put inside the kernel like this:
But for this you'll have to "man insmod", sorry, because it goes into the kernel which is in /boot/vmlinuz-something probably, so it'll be:
insmod <file.o> /boot/vmlinuz-2.blahblah.
