    halo.... currently i had successfully installed a ndiswrapper-1.23 into fedora core 4, 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 after installed 16K stack size.

    Now i am trying to configure wlan0 interface and i found out one link as below:
    http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...ess_Networking


    From the link, on the part of "Installing and Configuring ndiswrapper", step10:
    10. You will always need to have a ndiswrapper compatible kernel for the application to function correctly. To maintain your current kernel during yum updates, edit your /etc/yum.conf file to exclude the kernel from being kept up to date with the exclude option.

    #
    # File: /etc/yum.conf
    #

    exclude= kernel




    As well as on part of "Configure The New wlan0 Interface":


    Edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 to include these new lines:

    DHCP Version Fixed IP Version
    ============ =================

    DEVICE=wlan0 DEVICE=wlan0
    USERCTL=yes IPADDR=192.168.1.100
    ONBOOT=yes NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    BOOTPROTO=dhcp ONBOOT=yes
    BOOTPROTO=static



    I just able to read the file only and not able to edit or add informations to the file.
    Did anyone have any ideas???
    Your advices are much appreciated !!!
