I too was having this problem, but understand why jcliburn needs to do this. I have an application that will only run under Fedora 8, and I'm installing it on a system that only has the atl2. I can't just upgrade to the new kernel for Fedora 8 because, well, I don't have working ethernet yet.
It took me a couple of hours this morning, but I finally figured it out, thanks to jcliburn's link.
I downloaded the latest driver, transferred it to the Linux machine with a USB drive, ran the Make command, and then I got stuck when I tried to run insmod. Apparently the sbin folder in Fedora 8 is not in the path, so you need to either add it or run /sbin/insmod followed by the location and name of the atl2.ko that was created during the Make command.
Then I had to enable and activate the ethernet card using the networking tools in Gnome and then run the system updater.
