D-Link DGE-530T 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet - 28 October 2006

How to install D-Link DGE-530T 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet driver
on CentOS-4.4

/Linux driver/install-8_23.tar.bz2 from CD in D-Link box,
note: there is also a half-height bracket in the box.

make sure the link
ln -s ... /usr/src/linux is ok, especially if a new kernel is installed
When I built the driver :
ls -ltrd /usr/src/linux
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 Oct 27 21:26 /usr/src/linux -> /usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-42.0.3.EL-i686

/etc/modeprobe.conf - replace sky2 driver with installed sk98lin
alias eth0 forcedeth
alias eth1 sk98lin

Quoted from:
I installed the sk98lin driver in the supplied CDROM.

I followed the installation instructions in the README file in /Linux driver/install-8_23.tar.bz2. I did not follow the procedure in /Linux driver/sk98lin.txt - I suspect that is for an older driver version.

I loaded the driver module and it worked first time.
