Unhappy My network card needs a driver..HELP!


I recently installed linux on my computer and it automatically recognized every piece of hard ware except my Network card. It is a Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Adapter, Copper RJ-45. I think I found the Driver but I'm not sure what the instructions are trying to say. It's not simple. I need to modify the source code or something? I dont know how or where to do that. Or where to enter this code its telling me to enter. Some one just tell me the step you would take to install a driver.

What distro?
There is a driver for Marvell Yukon Ethernet Chipset
on kernel 2.6.6 and up, you can compiled it and you will be
able to have your ethernet card properly detected.
It's on: Networking support->Ethernet
(1000Mbit)->Marvell Yukon Chipset / SysKonnect SK-98xx
Support.
Here you will find these drivers:
Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T

Adapter (64 bit)
