Mostly drivers comes with installation instruction, I advice you to decompress e1000-7.6.5.tar and look for file install or readme or similar for installation instruction of this specific driver.

# Unpack the file in tmp
cd /tmp
bunzip2 e1000-7.6.5-i386-bin-1a.tar.bz2
tar xf e1000-7.6.5-i386-bin-1a.tar
cd e1000-7.6.5-i386-bin-1a

# This does a dry run and will tell you what it will do.
./install.sh -n

# This runs it as root and will do the installations.
sudo ./install.sh

# Load the new driver and restart networking
modprobe e1000
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
This command will add e1000 explicitly in your /etc/modules file in order to get the updated e1000 driver to load at boot. You only need to run this for the first installation. If you install the 2.6.20-16 version later, then you should omit this in the second installation.

echo "e1000" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules

That's it. You are done for the 2.6.22-X-generic kernel.

Install the second file e1000-7.6.5-i386-bin-1b.tar.bz2 in the same way after you have installed the 2.6.20-16 upgrade (which you will get automatically soon after your network is running).

please  let  me  know  of  it  works of post me the  errors  on website
