[CentOS] Getting a disk driver from 3ware installed.

We are having a little problem with a raid array, and it appears that 
the disk driver may be at fault.

A disk driver  for the kernel we are running, 2.6.18-53.1.21.el5.i386, 
has been downloaded from 3ware's site. The only documentation included 
says to run "linux dd". I'm assuming this is at the boot prompt upon 
startup, and not installation (I hope).

I have found some old threads about this for Centos 4, but it kinda 
drifted away and never really gave much info on what to do with the 
files that were downloaded.

Can anyone tell me what I'm supposed to do with this downloaded zipped 
file to get it to use the driver, please?
