Realtek Gigabit NIC driver problem

Hi everyone.

I'm trying to install the drivers of my NIC.
the NIC is a Realtek RTL8169
The readme says i have to change "NEW INCLUDE PATH" in the Makefile but i have no idea what i should change this in.

any help would be much appreciated.

[edit]: the OS is FC5

No need drivers, they are already in the kernel. Just load the module:
modprobe r8169
