Question Red Hat 9.0 and DFE-530TX+ (D-Link)

I am new to Linux and I have download the Red Hat 9.0. It installed OK! But, when I attempt to set up my network, the driver for D-Link's DFE-530TX+ is not in the drivers list. So, I went to D-Link and download the driver (RTL8139.c). When I tried to compile the driver with the command below, I get all kinds of errors saying that I can not complile the kernel.

Has anyone used a DFE-530TX+ with Red Hat 9.0 successfully? If so, how did you get it to compile?

gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`

Hmm, funny...

You appear to be trying to compile a new kernel with the driver included. But, I can tell you the DFE-530TX DOES work. It worked automagically in mdk91, but here it's a kernel module.

the chipset is VIA-rhine, so in the output of lsmod is:

via-rhine 15056 1 (autoclean)

This is the driver module for the DFE-530TX. Perhaps you can try the module approach? Try (as root) insmod via-rhine, you may need to compile it first.
