Ethernet Card Connection with Redhat Linux 7.3


I have a Marvell Yukon/SysKonnect SK-98xx Gigabit Ethernet Adapter which I've been trying to connect to Redhat 7.3 without much success. It came with a Linux driver and script but it gets to the last line of the script saying that it could not check Kernel header files. It appears to be looking for the path /usr/src/linux but my system's path is /usr/src/redhat. Any suggestions how I can get it working???

It appears that it is attempting to compile the driver. First of all, check if the driver runs on your kernel version, or there is a downloadable driver for your kernel version. If it does, try creating a symlink /usr/src/linux to the directory that actually contains the source branches under redhat and try again.

I checked and the Kernel version is correct. How does one actually create a symlink??
