SuSe 6.3 help updating kernel

I am desperate to get rid of windows but first need to get NIC working with SuSE 6.3. I need to get 2.2.5 kernel as Netgear fa311 driver says thats what it wants but I run out of space when "tarring" I only have 1.2mb hard drive (Wedding coming up not allowed to buy new computer yet!!)

Is there a way of updating the kernel without using so much space or am I doing something wrong..

This is what I have been doing... I have approx 400mb left on HD

Download tar.gzip in Windows
Mount windows partiion
copy file to /usr/src/
rename it from linux-2_2_5_tar.gz to linux-2.2.5.tar.gz
rm linux
gunzip linux-2.2.5.tar.gz
tar -xvf linux-2.2.5.tar

then runs out of space
