No driver loaded: 82566DM using Suse11.0 on Dell Optiplex 760

Problem

(a) I can not access the Internet from a Dell Optiplex 760 using Suse 11.0.

(b) I am a novce in this context.

Background 

Card: Integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet (Intel WG82567LM LOM)

Interface: 82566DM Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000

The setup should be trouble free: http://en.opensuse.org/HCL/Network_Adapters_(Wired)

Running (as root) netdriverinfo.sh gives the following output:

: 00:19.0

Make/Model = Dell Device 027f

Ethernet controller = Intel Corporation Device 10de

VenID:DevID = 8086:10de

Driver name = No driver loaded

Driver version = No driver loaded

Executing (as root) find /lib/modules/ -name e1000* gives nothing.

Installing (as root) e1000e-0.5.18.3.tar.gz gives an error message:

Makefile:70: *** Linux kernel source not found in any of these locations:

Makefile:71: [BLANK]

Manually I managed to find the following file created on 22 August 2008:

/lib/modules/2.6.25.16-0.1-pae/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko

Questions

Do I miss something? What is the next step?

Solution

(a) make sure the kernel source is installed (this was not done automatically installing from a DVD)

(b) compile and load the driver
