I have seen some cx88 drivers in a Suse 2.6.5 Kernel, so, I guess RHEL
2.6.9 has them, too. Some RHEL guy on the list?
If they do, you should find something with a command like this:

root at job6 ~
# find /lib/modules/ -name '*cx88*' -print

A command "modprobe -v cx88xx" should show some insmod messages, and/or
an "lsmod | grep cx88" should display cx88 related modules loaded in
your kernel.

As I said, you most probably need no tar archive. The driver should be
in your kernel already.
If it is not, or you want a newer version, you can download, compile and
install it from the linuxtv website. It is not cx88 specific. These are
all dvb drivers and infrastructure at once.
IIRC, it was something like

wget tarFile from linuxtv.org website
untar tarFile
cd untaredDirectory
sudo make install

modprobe -v cx88-dvb

It's been a while, so please see the details about that on the
linuxtv.org wiki. That is where I read about all that, back then...
