rtl8185 chipset for wireless pci card with driver compilation errors


Hey,
I'm somewhat of a newbie, been using linux for a little over a year, but mostly as an end user. I'm trying to get my Xterasys 802.11g Wireless LAN PCI Card (model: XN-2526) with rtl8185 chip to work. I downloaded the driver from the Xterasys website (http://www.xterasys.com/drivers.htm), Realtek website (http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...ownloads=true), and an experimental driver from sourforge.net (http://rtl8180-sa2400.sourceforge.net/). The experimental driver had a problem with the make file so I've since abandoned it, but the other two are the same exact driver and therefore give me the same warning. Here's the compilation output (really long!):

Code:
root@Kiba-desktop:/home/soaringeagle/Desktop# tar -xzf rtl8185_linux_26.1010.0531.2006.tar.gz root@Kiba-desktop:/home/soaringeagle/Desktop# cd rtl8185_linux_26.1010.0531.2006

Is the r8180.ko file corrupt? Its kinda weird since it happened to the drivers from both websites. Or could it just be the device or my computer? I have a Pentium III processor with 126(?)MB RAM, 40GB Harddrive, running Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft. When I bought this wireless device I got it because the reviews stated that this version of Ubuntu already had the drivers built in, and the device worked "out of the box".
