Help install Marvell 88E1111 network card

I have configured everything in my kernel conf 2.6.16. The only thing that isn't working correctly is my network card. When I startup I don't have internet so I guess I don't have it configured correctly in the kernel or need something else.I don't know what to enable besides marvell Yudon chipset. I read around and keep seeing this forcedeth driver. All I thought I had to do was choose the correct option for the kernel, but I guess there is more to it than that.

You need to install the right driver.

Go to
Accept license agreement and download the driver file.

Extract the driver source code with:
tar xjf install-8_31.tar.bz2
Install driver as follows:
cd install-8_31
make install
Load driver as follows:
modprobe sk98lin
Check for ethernet adapter as follows:
ifconfig -a
If you can see it, then add "modprobe sk98lin" to your appropriate modules file.
