Question Installing Supermount in RedHat 9.0


I have recently installed WineX on my RedHat 9.0 laptop. Trying to install software with mutltiple CD's is not working and I have read some info on SuperMount. I understand the configuration can be tricky and I am not versed well in Linux YET. I would appreciate and help anyone can offer. I am currently at kernel version 2.4.-20. Thanks in advance.

download supermount the same version as your kernel is.
then decompress that files to /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8(this is the default readhat 9 kernel version) and then use a linux shell and type in this command
# patch -p1 <"your supermount file name"
type it without "
then recompile your kernel and remember to say "y" under
filesystam-->supermount

that will do the job

and remember to read help file in
/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/documentations/filesystem/supermount.txt

im trying to install supermount on RedHat 9.
I'm trying to run the patch command and for about 10 files it prompts me to pick which file to patch. I guess there are 2 versions of some files because i have
kernel 2.4.20-8 which came with redhat9 and the newer one they released 2.4.20-20.9

i dont know how to pick which file to patch or set it to patch both.
really need help with this one.

can't find file to patch at input line 5345
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
