You should follow the directions posted many times on the list.

Users with RPM-based system may install the update with
rpm -i ftp://ftp.scyld.com/pub/network/netdriver-2.1.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/redhat/
rpm -bb SPECS/netdriver.spec
rpm -i --force RPMS/i386/netdriver*.i386.rpm

As a special case, a precompiled RPM for Red Hat 7.0 running the x86
uniprocessor kernel may be installed by running
  rpm -i ftp://ftp.scyld.com/pub/network/netdrivers-rh70.i386.rpm
