I've used it to get the 3com lan working on an A7N8X so i can verify that it does work.
I'd reccommend reading the tutorial on recompiling your kernel thats stickyed at the top of the forum. As for patching, save the diff to /usr/src then execute in /usr/src as root (make sure you have the kernel sources installed):
patch -p0 < asusa7n8x_3com.diff
More then likely, youll have to edit the patch to reflect the path to the files that are being patched. You should be safe changing the references to "linux-2.4.19" to "linux" provided the symlink was created when the kernel sources were installed.
