I have Intel Pro1000 GigE card in my system, when I try to install the 
driver for Linux where I downloaded from Intel web site, typing in "make 
install" will generate message:

linux kernel source tree []

I believe that is something to do with the way redhat 7.0 kernel is 
configured. I don't have that problem in redhat 6.2. Plesase help.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download the Intel base Pro1000 base driver from support.intel.com
2.follow the instruction and type "make install"
3.the message "linux kernel source tree []" come up and can't procceed.

Intel's tar.gz package allows you to build a rpm from it using

rpm -tb e1000*.tar.gz

When I tried that on a RH7 with updates I got the helpful message that I should run

make -C /usr/src/linux oldconfig

After I did that, there were a lot of warning messages, but the package built
fine (and was placed in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386;  Install with rpm -Uhv --force).

Make sure you have the kernel-source package installed.  Also, you may wish to
try the e1000 driver already on the system (v. 2.0.7 of the driver).
