Installing Kernel 2.4x on Fedora Core 4


I want to Install the Conexant Modem Driver on FC4. Since the driver is not compaitable with 2.6x, and i can't find the updated version (Linuxant is not open source and also not Free) hence the only way i can think to install the driver is to install an old kernel. can any one guide me how to do it or Tell me an alternate way of installing the driver

compiling and installing linux 2.4 (vanilla-flavoured from kernel.org) is basically the same method on any distro... check-out this guide:

let us know if you have any specific questions...

I was wondering whether there's any other method to install Conexant Modem Driver. Is there any driver (barring Linuxant) for Kernel 2.6x

i have no idea... but i just stopped-by the linuxant website and i read they do support kernel 2.6... in fact, i read they even have RPMs and stuff:

You can either rebuild your own custom kernel, or get one of our replacement "stk16" kernels provided for your convenience through the distribution-specific Fedora Core 2, 3 and 4 links

Linuxant doesn't provide the Full driver for free and neither is it open source

Here are some choices. (a) Pay the $20 for the driver. (b) Get a real modem.
