Procedure for Update hardware (device) driver


Hello to all members,

The kernel is supporting the hardware but comes with old version driver.
I would like to know what is the correct procedure for updating hardware (device) driver ? in end of day , I would like that the version of the driver will be the version which the hardware comes with it from the hardware manufacturer.

p.s
Also if you know good book which talk about all driver aspects in redhat I will be glad to know the name of the book.

I have downloaded the latest driver from Lsilogic and now I am trying to figure out how to use the DKMS for updating the driver.

The list of the files which I have are:
dkms-2.0.13-1.noarch.rpm
megaraid_sas-v00.00.03.19-1.noarch.rpm
megaraid_sas-v00.00.03.19-1-rhel40-u5-u6-all.img
megaraid_sas-v00.00.03.19.dkms.spec
megaraid_sas-v00.00.03.19-src.tgz

I installed the RPM package of dkms-2.0.13-1.noarch.rpm

The OS is : RedHat Enterprise linux 4 Update 6 X86_64 (64 bit)

The next step is to update the driver.
I tried to read the manual of DKMS but I couldn't understand what is the procedure for updating the driver.

The manual of DKMS can be found on the following URL: http://linux.dell.com/dkms/manpage.html

I thanks in advance anyone who can assist me with this procedure and write me exactly the commands which I need to type.
