Yes I have a windows box. Er... It's a dell. I'd be willing to try but if it would do anything to my usb adapter, then I'd have to wait another 3 hrs with dell to get it working again. I'm willing to try anything that you can think of! As long as I don't kill my network or my dell in the process.

I hate to say this but.....Its really up to you. Its your hardware, so you gotta make the decision. Have a read through the Linksys site and see if you want to try it. But as I said, the decision is entirely yours.

The first thing to do is to find out what kernel version your using. If you don't know, the command uname -a will tell you. If you burned more than one CD ( or if you bought RH), then the source file ought to be on one of the disks. If I remember correctly it is called kernel.versionnumber.src.rpm. If you don't have it on CD, check the Redhat site. Just be sure that the version number you download is the same as the kernel you're using.

After you have the file, just install it the way you would any other RPM.

Ok, I haven't gotten on that computer today, but when I get a chance I will check the cds..I only have 2, it was the publishers edition from begginning redhat linux. It didn't require the third one in the install or in my programs update.
