you need to have the kernel sources installed. i think the red hat install can go back and install them for you.

well... i don't use red hat, so i don't know how the install prog works with it. the kernel source rpm is probably somewhere on the install disks. the other option is to download a new kernel from either kernel.org or from redhat's site. the kernel sources need to be installed in /usr/src/linux-2.x.x - you need to get the correct kernel version tho.

if any red hat users here know how to install kernel sources from the cd's... feel free to chime in .

I used to use mandrake so redhat should be the same (rpm's). Have a look on your cd's for a kernel source rpm and simply install it with "rpm -i *.rpm" as root where *.rpm is the package name. And make sure the package matches the kernel version your using.

The kernel sources should be in the 'd' series of your packages.
