no networking with realtek 8101E/8102E chip


My wired and wireless networking does not work at all under fedora 17 on my laptop. I have tried to download the Linux driver from the realtek website but when I try to install it I get the following error.

[root@tosh tosh]# cd /home/tosh/Downloads/r8101-1.022.00
[root@tosh r8101-1.022.00]# ./autorun.sh

Check old driver and unload it.
Build the module and install
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 'clean'. Stop

Is there by any chance a prebuilt rpm or yum binary driver for this chipset available anywhere? The rpmfusion drivers only seem to refer to broadcom network drivers but I could be wrong. I also installed the newer 3.5 kernel to see if it changed anything but it did not (and I lost usb for some reason so I got rid of it).

Any ideas?
