New to Ubuntu - can't figure out dpkg "kernel image" message for RT2500 install
New to .deb package management, coming from years in RPM (Fedora/Suse). Have most of commandline (apt-get) and gui tools figured out, but this one has me stumped. I want to install the RT2500 module using module-assistant, and I have the K7 kernal image installed. Running it I get the messages below which seem circular; after creating the RT2500 package using module-assistant, dpkg complains that the required k7 kernal image isn't found, and apt-get says that it's already installed. I've apt-get, apt-cache searched, apt-get -f installed all over the place and I can't get past this problem.

You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
