Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I did what you wrote, but I couldn't fin the package called kernel-headers*.rpm, but I installed kernel-docs.rpm, and kernel-utils.rpm.
dev86.rpm was already installed, and bin 86 wasn't there
I tried to do the make command again, an everything worked fine, but when i do the insmod command linux replies with command not found... it also responds this way when i try ifconfig.
I really hope I can get this to work, because i have to boot my XP partition every time I want to access the internet...
ok Im pretty new to linux so far i have spent a month of 4hr sleep nights...lol. Well I was using RH 8.0 with kernel 2.4.18-8-14. I have a Epox 8dra+ MB. I got all the nforce drivers, everything worked, with the exeption of the agpgart. Nvidia sent out a patch which i installed but it worked only with 2.4.20-20.8. After I updated kernels from RH to the 2.4.20, nic, audio quit, couldnt run under that kernel and Nvidia only provided drivers for 2.4.19.
Seeing some good things about SuSE I bought 8.2. WoW kernel 2.4.20-SuSE everything worked out of box, very happy. (so i thought) Finding that SuSE did not include the kernel src, I downloaded it from there site installed the rpm and bamo. Now out of box the kernel see the ide nvidia controlers and such, but no agpgart. I applied the patch from nvidia and started my xconfig.
I went to where u find agpgart support and selected Y for Nforce chipset support. Agpgart was already at Y. I exited and did a
I use Grub boot I got errors for lilo though. it made a vmlinuz file
but when i reseted it made my kernel panic.
I think my problem in the end was that i had tried to install my NIC as another card on eth0, and installed my new driver as eth1... When I deleted them both, and installed the new driver as eth 0 everything worked fine!!
anyway, this guy has written step by step the way to solve it with broadcom cards!
