realtek-driver alsa


I reinstalled linux on my computer today and I am having a difficult time getting my sound-driver to work. I usually download my the driver for my Realtek ALC202 sound card at realtek's webpage -here: http://www.realtek.com/tw/downloads/...&Software=true
this time, things are different...

I have unzipped the file and have found the same directions as usual:


Installation:
This Source Code is from www.alsa-project.org.
For driver installation, please follow below steps.

Step 1. unzip source code
tar xfvj alcsound.tar.bz2

Step 2. Turn on sound support (soundcore module, default turn on)

Step 3. Complied source code
a. ./configure
b. make
c. make install
d. ./snddevices

etc.etc..

the problem is that the contents of this driver seem to have changed. There is no /configure. Here are the contents of the unzipped driver...

azx-112504.tar.bz2 core.h modules.conf
Readme.txt azx-util.tar.bz2 linux_r30.zip
<the driver turbolinux.txt

I have unzipped the azx files, and when I go inside of them the README files there do not provide directions on how to use them.
Inside of azx-112504.tar.bz2 -
CARDS-STATUS WARNING cvscompile parisc synth

README config.status isa sound version.in
Rules.make configure kbuild sparc
TODO configure.in modules support
when I run MAKE or MAKE INSTALL a failure occurs (I'm sorry this has become so long) here is what happens -
make

does anyone know how to solve this... maybe someone else with a 2.6.10 kernel and a realtek audio card?
