Question Help please!

I'm trying to install my Wusb11 driver i got form the linksys website. I downloaded everything but sadly I dont know how to install it. There is a MAKE file and a configuration file. I have mandrake 9.2 and KDE. All help is appreciated. Thanks.

You will find better response if your thread subject is something more informative than "Help Please!" Try something like "Wusb11 driver installation help"

if you do have make files:

login as root and open a terminal

cd to the directory where you have the files
then do:
make install

Had you logged on as root?

If not type 'su' and hit return and then input the root password - this will change you to a 'superuser'

and try again!

Yup, Im in root. Actually the first time I did it I forgot. Maybe I have to uninstall and reinstall. If so, how would I do that?
