I have a Redhat 3.4.3 boot cd that has a "unique" application set. For the boot sequence to complete correctly it needs to be able to recognize the ethernet adapter, and obtain a dhcp lease. Unfortunately this distribution was not compiled with the proper drivers for a couple notebooks i have been using (Tecra S1, S2); more specifically the Marvell Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller. I've checked around the web, and have found the SK98LIN module is used for this nic. Does anyone know of any precompiled drivers for this card, or if it is possible to precompile drivers for this distribution of linux? If so, how?

If you need more information, feel free to email me at: goodsh@gmail.com
