How do I install my ethernet driver?

Fortunately Intel has a linux driver for my ethernet port (an integrated port on the Abit IC7 Max3).

I downloaded it (a *.gz file) and extracted it and whatnot but I don't really know how to 'implement' (wc?) it. That is to say, how do I 'activate' the port and also--how do I make it start whenever I boot?

Essentailly, I can't surf the web as yet....I need to setup the network device then it'll work. I just don't know what files I have to alter and what I have to put where and how so if you guys could explain (including specific commands as I'm relatively new to Linux).

For reference, I am using Slackware 9.1, KDE, and the file is e1000-~1.gz.

Thanks in advance

since you've extracted it already, take a look inside the extracted folder. you should find a readme, or install file. the instructions will be there. post back if you have any trouble.
good luck.
