The two you got out of the mag were most likely (Assuming they identified as Fedora core 1):
yarrow-i386-disc1.iso
yarrow-i386-disc2.iso
This is the 3rd install cd you needed to download and burn:
yarrow-i386-disc3.iso

I burned the 3rd iso onto cd, but it doesn't autorun or anything....I can just browse the cd's folders/files...here they are:

Fedora
GPL
README
RPM-GPG-KEY
RPM-GPG-KEY-beta
TRANS.TBL

The only actual folder is the Fedora folder, and inside it there are 2 items:

RPMS (this is a folder with tons of rpm's inside)
TRANS.TBL


I don't see source anywhere

Look for kernel-source-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.i386.rpm in the RPMS folder of each install CD. It should be on one of them.

If you can't find it, just download, then as root cd to the download dir and command rpm -Uvh kernel-source*

How's this...before I read the last post of yours I just burned ISO #1 onto a cd also....it did autorun and I checked to install kernel development, and now it's asking me to put in ISO #3 (which I have already burned ) to install:

kernel-source-0:2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.i386

Is this an alternative method (but equally correct)?

OMG sweet!!!!! I now have my first linux system running with internet hahahaha

Thanks a TON fancypiper...I'll be sure to give you a great rating

I just extracted the tar file, then ran:

% make clean
% make
% make install

And boom....when I rebooted some kind of auto hardware config came up....and after I checked dynamic settings (I guess this means auto detect?), my net worked!!

Thanks again!!

You didn't need to re-boot. Just load the module you just made (see man insmod), then ifup eth0 should have done it.

Re-booting is for installing either new hardware or running/testing a new kernel you just made.

Quick question...when I boot up now, the boot loader gives me 3 choices instead of 2:

I just updated my kernel and kernel source through the redhat updater, and I now have kernel-2.4.22-1.2149 and the source to go with it.

The boot loader now has these 3 choices:

Fedora 2.4.22-1.2149
Fedora 2.4.22-1.2115
DOS

Should I remove the old kernel choice somehow or is this regular behavior and I should just pick the newest kernel every time I go into linux?

Edit: Also, I chedked the file you referred to for loading modules, and it really doesn't make sense to me? Could you elaborate on "loading the module into the kernel" for me please?

I would test the new kernel for a few days. When it works to your satisfaction, you can remove the old kernel-source, then edit your /boot/grub/grub.conf file to remove the old kernel stanza.

You will need to install the kernel-source for that kernel as well if you wish your ethernet to work with the new kernel. You will have to go through the same proceedure to install proprietary drivers for any new kernel.

For a better and easier software management program, install the 2 rpms for apt4rpm, after it installs command apt-get update, then apt-get install synaptic. You should have an icon for Synaptic somewhere on your menu and it will have more packages available that Fedora doesn't have.

I like it much better than Fedora's pacakge manager.
