    What error do you get, exactly?

    here is the error:

    here is also the makefile for the card:

    INCLUDEDIR = /usr/include


    OBJS = dgem.o
    all: $(OBJS)
    dgem.o: sp.o hsm.o dge.o
    $(LD) -r $^ -o $@


    rm -f *.o *~ core

    You will need to install the kernel source code.

    The source you have isn't compatible with 2.4 series. You should enable National Semiconductor DP83820 support support in your kernel to support that card. You might have to update to the lastest kernel though since I am not sure if that version has this support.
