  thanks a lot, at least I have hope now. I downloaded the latest
version 0.9.16, compiled using KINCLUDES=/usr/src/linux/include (no
erors or warnings) but when I try to use it I've got unresolved symbols.
I am using kernel 2.4.2 - do I need 2.4.3?

  here's the output of modprobe and  uname:

jojda:/home/erik# modprobe 8139too
