    Wireless drivers


    Being a total novice to linux I've found myself in a bit a strife!
    I've loaded RedHat onto my laptop - a rather old distrubutuion but one that works on my hardware. All works fine except I can't get it to recognise my Atmel wireless card. It sees it but doesn't recognise it. I've searched the interweb for linux drivers and have found them but don't know what to do with them!!
    Found this on interweb - http://www.gelato.unsw.edu.au/lxr/so...reless/atmel.c

    Atmel 502 series wireless - can someone PLEASE ehlp me work out how to load this driver?
    Cheers

    It appears to me from my Fedora Core 7 box that the atmel drivers are already included. When you say "Red Hat" which version? RH9? I wouldn't know about it as I haven't used in years. To see if the atmel drivers are on your boxl, do from the command line as su:
    Code:
    updatedb
    When it finishes:
    Code:
    locate atmel
    Do you see it in /usr/src/kernels? Or in /lib/modules? Neither? If not, any reason you may not want to run a later version of RH like CentOS or Fedora that will have your drivers available and easy to utilize?
