kernel header files not found by ethernet driver
i tried tools>system>cofigure your computer>network and internet.
but it didn't detect the ethernet card.
i also downloaded the driver for the Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller card for linux kernel version 2.6. and tried installing it but the installation failed as it couldn't locate the linux header files.
may be it needs /usr/src/linux to be present on the system which mine doesn't have.
what should i do now?
would downloading it from kernel.org serve any purpose?
