Need to install PCNET PR0200 Network adapter on Ubuntu 6.x.x Totally Newbie

Hi. I need to install my NIC on ubuntu, on the driver folder (opened in windows), came a readme file with a set of instructions but I find them very confusing, and the file seems to be a very old version.

By the way my card is: CNet PRO200WL PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter

Can anyone tell me how to install my NIC card? (considering I'm new using linux).

open a terminal and run 'sudo modprobe tulip' then 'sudo ifconfig eth0 up'.

if that doesnt work post the output of 'sudo ifconfig -a', 'sudo lspci', 'sudo lsmod', and 'sudo dmesg | tail'. if any of these commands dont work, try them without 'sudo '. (sorry i dont use sudo and am not familiar exactly with it)

if this process doesnt work do it again with the initial command being ''sudo modprobe dmfe''
