Intex_rtl_8139d_lan_card software installation problem in RHEL 4 AS

Hi, this is sasidhar.I am very new to linux.
I am using RHEL 4 AS U2.
I bought Intex_rtl_81392_lan_card and I downloaded required software
from internet.
when I trying to follow the setps given by the it is not working properly.

This is the information I found in the readme.txt.
Kernel Supported
This driver support linux kernel version 2.4.x/2.5.x now.

1) Create a temporary directory:
# mkdir /temp

2) Change to the temporary directory:
#cd /temp

3) Copy driver (sl_linux.tgz) from CD-ROM to the temporary directory, and follow the commands:
# mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt
# cp /mnt/sl_linux.tgz /temp

4) untar the archive file:
# tar xzvf sl_linux.tgz
# cd sc92031

5) Compile the driver source files and it will generate sc92031.o, and
copy it to correct driver installation path (The installation directory
is different in different kernel versions. In 2.4.x kernel, the path is
/lib/modules/KERNEL_VERSION/kernel/drivers/net/, and in 2.2.x kernel,
the path is /lib/modules/KERNEL_VERSION/net/)
# make install

6) Check configuration file (/etc/modules.conf or /etc/conf.modules,it
depend on your Linux distribution) for loading kernel modules. Make sure
there is the following content in the configuration file, where # is
interface number :
alias eth# sc92031

7) Reboot now:
shutdown -r now

8) Install your driver module (If the driver module is in the wrong place,
an error message will appear, and say that can't find the driver
insmod sc92031.o

8) Use ifconfig command to assign the IP address, where # is network
interface number:
ifconfig eth# <IP>

9) Check the interface works:
ping <remote_host_IP>


It's not untaring when I use that step 4.
please help me to solove this problem.
