Nforce on board Networkin Problem...and USB Storage Question

Ok, this is my second day using linux, so please bare with me.

I have a nforce on board ethernet card...and I got the driver files, from my CD...and ran the RPM (thru the GUI) ... everything seemed right, then I went to configure nvlan or whatever, and it didnt recognize my LAN or something (said it couldnt be active) so I accidently deleted now I can't even try to configure it at all...and when I try to reinstall the drivers from the RPM file, it says it's already been installed...and being such a linux noob, I dont know how to uninstall it or anything...

so I tried to read thru some of the help here, and I found some .src.rpm file, and put it on a USB Device...and plugged it I dont know what to do...I go into the hardware browser, and it shows up as a HDD (under my HDD) ... as like /dev/sda or something....but I dont know how to mount it or, get the file off of the device...

can someone please help

BTW i am running Redhat 2.4.20-8 is the kernel i think?

To uninstall an RPM, run (as root)
rpm -e name_of_package
If you want to mount your USB drive, try (as root)
mkdir /mnt/usb
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
If your USB drive uses an NTFS filesystem, instead use
mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
You should be able to see the contents of the drive.
