In reply to Craig, you didn't say exactly what version of the driver you
are trying to use, so I've assumed intel-536ep-4.69.tgz which is the
latest I can find on Intel's site.

Looking inside the Intel536_inst script we see that it's basically a big
if statement that copies files to various locations for various
distributions. Debian/Ubuntu is not one of the supported distributions,
so you get the error above "unknown distribution"
At this point the hamregistry and the driver itself have been installed
successfully (as per the previous two messages), what you don't have is
the boot scripts.
It's a fairly simply matter to install these manually: run the following
commands as root:
# install -o root -g root -m 755 Intel536_boot /etc/init.d/Intel536
# ln -s ../init.d/Intel536 /etc/rcS.d/S16Intel536
This copies the init script to place and links it into the boot process
just after Ubuntu loads the standard modules.
