How to install QOS

Hi, Im new to this forum and linux in general.
I currently have a dilemma, my housemate uses a webcam on our internet connection 24/7 and it is killing our upload bandwidth.
I have a linux machine acting as the gatway to our DSL modem and would like to set up some kind of bandwidth shaping. Preferably just give him lower priority than anybody else or even just limit his upload speed to about 10k/s. Ive alsready gave him a static IP.
I found wondershaper and will probably use that as a starting guide but I need to set the kernel to use QOS first. Can anybody tell me how to do this. Im using fedora kernel 2.6.5-1.358.

Thanks in advance

basically you just need to re-compile your kernel with qos support...

this is one of the best kernel compile guides i've seen:

tc should be compiled with the kernel by default, shouldnt really need to recompile.

anyway, check out awesome site.
