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.

Can someone help me install the Intel® MD563X-HaM V.92 chipset Linux driver????
I am using Red Hat Linux 7.1
6 steps to install
1. login as ROOT
2. extract the archive into a directory with "tar -xvf <archivename>.tgz"
3. cd into the directory it created.
4. Type: make clean
5. Type: make all
6. Type: make install
The "make clean" function runs ok, but "make all" cannot find "all". Another forum suggested "make ham". This looked like the solution, but ends up with following Error messages:
. . .
if [ -a /boot/vmlinuz.version.h ]; then \
cp /boot/vmlinuz.version.h /lib/modules/`uname
cd coredrv; make \
"PSTN_DEF=-DTARGET_HAM -DDSP_CODE_800_SERIES -DTARGET_LINUX -DLINUX"\ ham;

You need to look insiide the INSTALL file that is in the directory with the make file and the configure file, that will give you specifics what argument are available for configure (if any) and general help. The most common Argument is --prefix=<directory> which is where you want the compiled files to go when you install, this usually defaults to /usr/local, but some times you want the files to go to /usr so you would run configure like this:
Try looking in the INSTALL file in the directory where the make and configure files are.
I have had a same problem like you did, RedHat7.1 comes with kernel 2.4.x and the intel hamdrivers are ready to compile with a kernel not newer than 2.2.x. So go to the intel site, get the new drivers that are prepared for compilation under a 2.4.x kernel and try again.
You might run into other problems after that, but keep posting and you will get answers ;-)
The reply made by acid_kewpie will get you back on track. Get the new kernel 2.4.17 (latest known stable kernel) including the kernel headers. Compile the kernel and you will be able to compile the hammodem drivers. A good kernel compilation manual can be found at Linuxnewbies ( http://www.linuxnewbie.org/nhf/intel....4upgrade.html ). Be careful, in the submenu 'Network device support' you have to activate the options 'PPP support for sync tty ports' and the same option for async ports. Without those your modem won't find the PPPservice.
