Step 6 Open the CD-ROM icon on the desktop that appears displaying DFE-530TX+ just below the icon.

Step 7 Open the Macintosh folder.

Step 8 Open the DFE-530TX+ driver for MAC OS.

Step 9 Open the installer program.

Step 10 Click on install to complete the installation process.

2.install the DFE-530TX+ network adapter in Linux Red Hat

Note: New Distributions of Linux support this card with built-in drivers and near auto-installation.

Follow these instructions to install the DFE-530TX+ Rev. D1 and D2 in Red Hat 6.x.

The Readme.txt file has excellent instructions for more advanced users in Red Hat 6.x and up.

For novice users, the following step-by-step instructions should suffice, assuming the floppy is mounted.

$ cd floppy
$ cp rtl8139.c /root(or any temp directory)
$ cd /root
$ gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`


$ insmod rtl8139.o

At this point the drivers have been installed and inserted. Configure the network properties of the card according to your current network settings.

For Red Hat 7.0 the install is a little trickier because of a known issue with the default install of the OS.

The workaround is as follows:

First, you must change the following file: /usr/include/linux/modversions.h Using any text editor such as PICO or vi, insert the following line into this file:

#include linux/modsetver.h

Then continue with the compilation and install:

cd floppy
cp rtl8139.c /root(or any temp directory)
cd /root
gcc -I /usr/src/linux/include -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`


insmod rtl8139.o
