Thanks, but the Fedora page won't work with Red Hat 9. You should get a more recent distro, but if you really want to use Red Hat 9, try the Speedtouchconf http://speedtouchconf.sourceforge.net/
Are you sure 8.35 are the correct VPI/VCI numbers?

Have you tried the fedora page with Red Hat 9? You should be able to use the kernel driver anyway. You just might have to fiddle around with the settings a bit more. The speedtouchconf script uses the old user space driver which was made before Alcatel made there specification open. Even the guy who wrote the speedtouch user space driver is now helping out with the kernel driver. I think the speedtouchconf guy is doing a good job but often the kernel driver can be easier to set-up I have found.
