Coincidentally, I've just been exchanging email regarding this driver.
His spec file had a few minor flaws which should be ironed out now.
If you have the usual build tools and the relevant kernel-devel package,
the nightly tarball should "just work." Some of the older ones (before
my complaints) require a litte work, chiefly because the spec expects a
different tarball name (and internal directory name).
rpmbuild -ta --target=<arch> <package.tar.gz>
I've been building for FC3 kernels.
