In learning about fiber, where do I go from here?

I have some very old qlogic qla2000 cards and fiber hard drives. Trying to learn how to use them before dropping big bucks. I found a driver set for linux written in 2004 that I believe the kernel at that time was 2.6.15 (don't hold me to that). I will need to compile during install is what I am told, but need to find an old release of redhat (or compat) with this kernel. Think I recall people having issues with 2.6.18 and above.

Someone mentioned Centos but isn't that newer than 2.6.15?

can't you install old destro version like centOS 4 which has kernel 2.6.9 .. and then upgrade your kernel to whichever required to you?

Absolutely! No reason why not, assuming that I can get my hands on that release. And I have. Currently downloading the iso's. There goes the old bandwidth.

Thank you
