Newbiee needing help Installing NIC driver of Mandrake 10.0
I just installed Mandrake 10.0 on a new Dell Optiplext GX280 with the Integrated Broadcom 57XX Gigabit adapter.
I downloaded the driver from www.broadcom.com in zip format, unzipped and burned the contents to cd (I did all this from a Windows machine). I then copied the data from cd to /tmp. The contents of the zip file were a .RPM, .GZ, 2 .TXT files. I then unzipped the .GZ file to /tmp. That folder contains a few folders (Network Install, Patches, SRC) and a few TXT files.
I need to figure out how to install the new driver (i believe its in the source folder) so I can get my NIC card going.
Any advice would be greatyl appriciated. I am a newbie at Linux.

This link may be useful, mostly in section 3.d. Note that where they refer to " ls /lib/modules/`uname -r` ", you may need to do: ls /lib/modules/ to see what is a valid substitute for `uname -r`
