Hi, I'm a total n00b too. I have file called redhat9.img that is supposed to contain drivers for my gigabit ethernet card. What the heck do I do with this file? I tried viewing it using emacs and pico but I just get a ton of junk on the screen. I also used the "file"command on it and found out that it's of file type EXT2, Linux rev 1.0
