You should two things:
First you install the image. Mount your windows partition, go to the
directory the package is, and run
dpkg -i kernel-image-2.4.25-i386.deb (if this is the name of the
downloaded file). Configure your bootloader to use the initrd that came
with the kernel. Add a line
to the "Linux" section in /etc/lilo.conf. Then run lilo. Reboot. Your
old kernel will still be available. You can press shift+tab at the boot
prompt to have lilo ask you which one to load.
After booting with the new kernel, load the driver with modprobe, add a
alias eth0 yourmodule
in /etc/modutils/aliases, run update-modules, and edit
/etc/network/interfaces using the right settings for your card (gateway,
IP and so on). You can also install the etherconf package or run
if it is already installed. When finished, run
Use ifconfig to check if your settings are correct. Now add the line for
the kernel image you are using to /etc/apt/sources.list and run apt-get
update. In the future apt will tell you if there is an updated version
of that package (e.g. an security update).
