well, if you have a rpm, then install it like you usually do it (try "rpm -i /path/rpmname.rpm").

Oh, by the way, what's the exact name of the rpm you downloaded? (it should contain a number that represents the kernel version. It should install itself somewhere in /lib/modules/kernelversion, where kernelversion should be the output of uname -r. If it's for another kernel version, it will install itself in another folder, and it won't work...)

ok... so i have to know the kernels version.
i'm not sure, but it think it is 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
i found this number in grub.conf. if it is right, there is no rpm with those numbers at the link you give me.

To find your kernel version, open up a console and type in
uname -r

Now if you don't find a package that contains that version number, then you can do what I said in post #14, with this archive http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca50x/Downl...0070426.tar.gz
