My Cool Solution provides instructions and the VMWare image of a SLES9+SP3 VMWare guest OS which is setup with the necessary kernel and software to compile new modules for ZfD 7.00 SP1.
People seem to ask about this kind of thing all of the time in the Novell Support Forums, so I decided to just go ahead and do it.
You have a computer with a new network card, but the current version of the ZENworks Imaging environment doesn't include support for it. You have the source code for the network card module, but you don't have a Linux installation to compile the new module.
A pre-configured VMWare virtual machine which can be downloaded and used to compile modules for the ZENworks for Desktops 7.00 SP1 Imaging environment.
The virtual machine was built using VMWare Workstation 5.5.2 build-29772 for Windows. The virtual machine can be run using VMWare's free VMWare Player here. I have tested the setup with VMWare Workstation 5.5.2 for Windows and VMWare Player 1.0.2 for Windows. It will probably work with VMWare Workstation for Linux and VMWare Player for Linux, but I haven't tried it.
