3m TouchWare Video Controller Touchscreen Monitor


This is a 2 parter.
We have touch screen monitors that use the 3M TouchWare controller. After some reading, I've found that these drivers contain a calibration tool that i would like to have available and are something I'd like to roll out.
Problem A:
Currently the installed drivers came with the distribution. i would like to uninstall those drivers and install the new drivers i have found.
Problem B:
These drivers were designed for Kernel 2.4, i am using 2.4.20-6. I am under the impression that i must REcompile these drivers before they are useful to me. The linked ReadMe at the top is where im getting my information from, but if someone has more insight, please let me in.
Also, if you need any other information about the machine im installing these drivers on, please let me know.
Thank you in advance.

PS... im not a great with this stuff, please take it easy on me.
