safeway lancard/mycom surecom Network adapter problem

I have installed red hat 8.0
and have a Safeway Lancard SW PCI
and I want to have access to the internet.
Im not very good at linux
but I folowed the instructions I got with the disk
i typed in the following in the console as root
with the files in the same folder


1. copy the source code fealnx.c to Linux,

2. compile the source code, the instruction for compiling the driver is
as follows:

#gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net/inet -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c fealnx.c

3. insert the driver as module,

#insmod fealnx.o

4. bind your card to an IP address

#ifconfig eth0 ${IPADDR} broadcast ${BROADCAST} netmask ${NETMASK}

5. add your card to IP routing table,

#route add -net ${NETWORK} netmask ${NETMADK} eth0

6. now, you should be able to ping local network.

but nothing happens or there comes up a huge amount of errors
like I said Im not very good at linux yet
aren't there any tutorials how to do it
I have search the web for info on how to intall the card but didn't find any usefull
also in the configcentral the computer finds a network card but it's name is MYSON SURECOM EP-320X-S
which one is it?
