yes well thanks for the forewarning.

.c files need to be compiled to become kernel module files .ko

1) I assume you can boot into this distro so it should have documents on howto to make modules?

2) can you post a link to where you got that driver from pls...sometimes that site has instructions we can check for you

I followed the instructions given in Readme.txt

I might be doing something wrong.
