DWL-122 Driver Install Help

Im a newbie to Linux and i need help on installing drivers. I have the driver for the DWL-122 unpacked and everything. I understand that i must run Compile to start the process. I do this and at the every end, it needs the linux source directory which defaults to '/usr/src/linux' which does not exist and im not real sure where the linux source directory would even be. I have college linux 2.5 which appears to not be that popular, perhaps i should install another make. Please help.

You probably don't need to re-install. I would assume that College linux would distrubute a package of the kernel source code just like every other distro. If I remember correctly, College is based on Slackware so if you can't find a College source, a Slackware package may do the trick. I would have a good rummage around the College linux site and see if they don't have a package.

I did a little looking and it looks like you can get the source code here . Make sure that you are running a 2.4.23 kernel however. Type uname -a in a console to find out.
