    Ok, a tarball is like a zip file. After you have downloaded that and viewed the README, don't worry about that step(you've already done that). I'm going to assume you extracted it to something like /home/username/r1000_v1.05 .
    Open Applications>Accessories>Terminal
    type su and enter your password(when it prompts you) if your not already signed in as the root user.
    type:
    Code:
    cd /home/username/r1000_v1.05
    then type:
    Code:
    make clean modules
    d
    and then type:
    Code:
    make install
    and lastly, type:
    Code:
    depmod -a
    After all of that has been done, restart(reboot) your system.
    If it still doesn't work after the restart, come back and let me know.
