A very quick reply ...

- RH 7.0 uses a 'broken' kernel source
- It also has developmental gcc and all kinds of nasty stuff. IMHO.

My solution for a newbie (?):
- Downgrade to RH6.2
- Go to http://www.scyld.com/network/updates.html
  * Following SRPM compile instructions.
  * Install SRPM

Other solution:
- Get vanilla 2.2.x kernel source 
- Compile
- Get new drivers.
  * Compile, etc.

> Pls kindly advise where I have gone wrong and the correct procedure to
> compile and install the drivers.
> Any help would be greatly appreciated.
> Thank you so much.
