Question Compiling Old Kernel with Old GCC

Hello guys, I'm a newbie in Linux but with a BIG problem in my company.

I'm having problems to make Linux find the multiserial board, it's very Old and didn't has support, it was discontinued. I just have the drivers for a specific linux kernel (2.6.14 and 2.6.9).

I downloaded both to test the drivers, but they didn't accept compile in GCC 4.4.7. I heard that GCC 2.95 can compile any kernel, and THIS is my problem. I just can't install this GCC 2.95, I spent two whole days trying.

Someone have any ideia in how I can do it??

My actual release is CentOS 6.0 with a default kernel 2.6.32-71.e16.i686

I hope this is not an outward facing machine . CentOS 6.0 is 3 years out of date and missing 3 YEARS of security updates

you will likley find that downloading random rpm's is the FASTEST way to royally "bleep"-up your system.

when centos 6.1 came out the 6.0 archive moved to the historical archive " The Vault"
NONE of the repos that were on the 6.0 dvd will work
you need to manually edit them to point to the historical archive
and are not supported and have not been supported !!!

the VERY LAST updates cent6.0 hade

install the gcc development group FROM THIS REPO
and install the kernel and source FROM THERE

this will install gcc and ALL the extra it NEEDS
su -
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
