What kind of file is your driver? Is it an RPM, or source code? Also, what is the name of the driver? If it is an RPM there should have been installation instructions where you downloaded it at (kind of a mute point if you can't connect). If it is source, unpack the file, cd into the directory it created, and look for a README or an INSTALL document.
