    I don't know Fedora Core 6, but generally it's that way:

    1.
    Check with "lsmod" the exact name of the driver. This should be different from the file name, i.e. no *.ko (or *.o) ending.

    2.
    Being root or superuser, do an "rmmod xxx" with that name. The devices for that driver should not be in use.
    At problems, "man rmmod".

    3.
    Doing an "lsmod" again, the appropriate driver shouldn't show up anymore.

    You could blacklist it assuming it's a module.

    To do so, type the following as root:
    Code:
    echo "blacklist xxxx" > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    Replace xxxx with the module name.
