Installing my network adapter

I was able to download my device driver for my Marvell Yukon gigabit ethernet card. Ubuntu didn't recognize it and i need help installing the file.
Here is the file i downloaded "install-8_23.tar.bz2" I know how to extract a .tar file, but i have no idea what a .bz2 file is. I need help installing it. Any help would be very appreciated. I am fairly new in linux. So be gentle.

bz2 is the bzip program. You can

bzcat install-8_23.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -

to unpack

I found this link to be helpful for Yukon Gigabit on the 2.6 kernal:
