Maybe I should go out and buy Windows. Does that directory exist for the kernel source? Does not require downloading the drivers directly from Realtek.

See readme file below. Try Cariboo’s suggestion first, it can potentially save some hassle If you got it from hereit says it will support both 32 and 64 bit distributions.
