    D-link dwl-g520 driver installation


    Im running redhat 9 on a amd k6-2/500 chip, with over 256 mbs of ram. I purchased a d-link system to connect the computer im on to an older one upstairs. the one upstairs was running 98, but our d-link card only works with 98SE. There are drivers available for Linux so i downloaded and installed redhat. Since im new to Linux, just 2 days, i have no idea how to install the software ive downloaded. I read the file that came with the driver, but i still dont get it. heres my d-link model http://d-link.com/products/?pid=12 and the driver i downloaded for it was here:
    http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/s...i-20030802.tgz. There is a readme.txt that came with it but it doesn't make any sense to me.

    Thanks

    Wow, you're really getting into Linux! You may be a little over your head here. If you want to try it, open up a terminal. On the command line, type cd and the directory you extracted the files to. Become root by typing su and enter the root password. Enter make and if that all goes well, make install. This automatically compiles the driver and installs it.

    This is quite challenging, compiling new drivers. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with wireless networks.

    Good luck.
