Installing Network Card on Fedora Core 2

I am new in Linux and have difficulty in installing a Minitar wireless network card on newly installed Fedora Core 2.

Here is what the manual says about installing the network card on Linux:
For 2.6 series kernel:
1) cp ./2.6.x/Makefile
2) $make -C /path/to/source SUBDIRS=$PWD modules
Where /path/to/source is the path to the source directory for the (configured and built) target kernel.
3) run '/sbin/insmod rt2500.ko' (as root)
'/sbin/ifconfig ra0 inet YOUR_IP up'
4) uncomment the line include ./ in Makefile
5) make install
I figured out that those lines are commands that I should execute through linux terminal but the first command already failed me. Would anyone here give me a detail steps to install my network card. I would appreciate any help offered. I hope that I can finally go online with my Fedora. Thanks.

What files do you have to work with in the module directory?
You need to copy the Makefile to the /usr/src/linux directory.
I guess you are running kernel 2.6 since you're going to use that?

Please give more info, to get help.
card specs, and your lspci output would be nice.

//Just type lspci in the console, and paste...
That's the hardware which your system has detected...
