Ummm ... you installed it. You have the
CD's ... find the software installation bit
of your distro (Redhat package manager?)
and select add software, and then search
for kernel source. Then install it.

Cheers,
Tink

Question

I am having the same trouble, but I HAVE installed the kernel source (~190MB) from the Redhat 9 CD using the Package Management tool. How come the drivers won't build correctly? I really really appreciate your help (I'm using kernel 2.4-20.9). Thanks!
