My setup is a Linksys 4-port+switch Router and a Linksys Wireless-B Access Point that is conected to the router at port 2 (third port).

As for the rest I'll get back to you on that in a little bit. (about half an hour or so from the time of this post).

Error reads:
Code:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
      SET failed on device ra0 ; Operation not supported.

The card works again, I'm actually posting this from the PC. But...

New Problem: RedHat does not save the card's configuration for next logon.

Everytime I shut down, I have to re-install the drivers by running the 'make install' again. What's wrong here???? I want it to save all these settings so that the PC will recognize the network when it boots up. It doesn't find the router and fails to PING it while booting up the kernel and all that. There's actually a part where it tries to ping the router, but fails to find it. Then I have to re-install the drivers and manually reconnect with the configui. At least here I know it works....

P.S. Also, I need RH to recognize a second HD I have hooked up to the PC that is in FAT32. Hardware browser recognizes it but there seems to be a problem with it actually showing up in RH. Do I need to compile some more hard drive controllers for this system?

Put the wireless parameters in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (if that's your wireless interface). That way, they'll be applied on boot.

For the second hard drive, man mount should tell you all of the details. You can also add it to your /etc/fstab file for more convenient (even automatic) mounting.

I'm sorry but I don't understand what I have to do here. I need someone to dumb it down some more for me (basically tell me what I have to do)....

Please note: this is my first time running Linux so I don't know how to do hardly anything.

EDIT: Got the hard drive mounted, still need to figure out how to get the network on boot thingy working.

I don't use RH/Fedora but he's saying is:

change to "root" user "su" -> "root password"

open /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 with your editor of choice (I like mcedit but vi is excellent also. So "mcedit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0" or
"vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0" and make the appropriate edits. Probably this is a plain text file with a series of options like

IP=
NETMASK=
DHCP=

Just fill in your parameters and save the file. The next time you boot the card should work fine.

Alan

EDIT: if you still have questions post /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0.
