If you are using the standard kernel, you should have the ctc module
available and just need to load it. If you are already using a kernel you
compiled yourself, it's your responsibility to build the ctc driver
as well.

When you add the adapter, first make sure it shows up in /proc/subchannels,
then configure it in /etc/chandev.conf as described in the manual. 
If rebooting is an option for you, do so. It is usually the easiest way to
activate the card after configuration.
