That chipset should use the sky2 module. Load that one and configure nic settings. Not sure but would think it is already built in the existing kernel. List the modules with lsmod to see what is loaded. Then use ' modprobe sky2 ' to load if not.

Other than that nice specs on that notebook. Looks like you should get everything working except xD cards from the tifm modules.

Are you prefixing the commands with sudo so you're doing them as root? If not that would explain the permission denied errors.

I've never had very good luck with Marvell NICs -- they're about the only kind I've ever had trouble getting working in Linux. Sounds like things haven't changed much since I tried :-(.

in the first line of install.sh change /bin/sh to /bin/bash ( it worked for me) but even after loading sk98lin I have no eth0 and no network, so I'll probably have to buy other network card
