Well , i'm still a bit of a newbie myself, i can only get you half the answer you are looking for but lets try :

cp yourdriverfile.tar /usr/src
cd /usr/src/
tar -xvzf yourdriverfile.tar

Now your driver file should be unpacked in it's own directory.
If you are lucky, you will find a configure script there that you can run with either : ./configure or else with sh configure

If you do not get any errors you can then compile it. However i am not skilled enough to guide you through the compiling. (I always forget which one comes first, make, or make install).

Hope the next one that responds can help you with this

Good luck !

You may not need to compile it yourself. Look for a driver called e1000. The quick way to do this is to type modprobe e1000 as root. If no errors, you have an installed driver. If you get errors, post them here (copy and paste). If module not found then you'll have to go the compile option or recompile your kernel with the e1000 driver. Actually, if you recompile your kernel, compile it with ALL the drivers as modules.
