    Intel537 driver does not work under red hat 9...

    Hello I am new to linux as well as this forum. I have managed to install red hat 9 kernel ver 2.4.20-8 in a dual boot environment with windows xp. Am using an intel537(Ambiant md3200) based soft modem. The driver i downloaded from doesnt make properly and make also fails to install it. I will appreciate any help that is extended towards me. Details of the make process are pasted below:

    [root@localhost intel-537EP_secure-]# make clean
    cd coredrv; make clean
    make[1]: Entering directory `/root/intel-537EP_secure-'
    rm -f *.ko *.o *~ core
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/intel-537EP_secure-'
    rm -f *.o *.ko
    [root@localhost intel-537EP_secure-]# make 537
    Module precompile check
    Current running kernel is: 2.4.20-8

    Why can't you just use the precompiled one?

    Good queestion.Now why cant i just use a precompiled ready to roll driver.The answer is that had there been one i wouldnt have had the need to post on this forum i would have just grabbed the driver and installed it on the wink. But since the driver is no where to be found i have to either change my hardware which is not easy since i live in a third world country and hardware is not that easy to be bought here or else i would find a source for the driver and compile it which is unfortunately what i am trying to do. Anyway thanks for the reply.
