    yes and no

    So far i've gotten the drivers complied and loaded, and I can ping ... so it's working.... so far.....
    had to edit "Makefile" in the Attansic src directory to remove any reference to config.h and replace it with autoconf.h (because config.h was depreciated and replaced with autoconf.h in ver 6 --or so I'm told) also had to edit at.h and do the same replacement in that file also had to edit skbuff.h in /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/source/include/linux and add "unsigned short tso_size;" to the skb_shared_info struct.

    It seems to be working now, but as this is my first time compiling anything (let alone a device driver) in linux (though i've done a fair bit of similar work in other os/s) I make absolutley no guarantees that it won't blow up.

    now it works

    Haven't figgured out why yet but: instead of the mod to skbuff.h file if you put that file back to the original and make the mods to the at_main.c file as in (http://www.hogchain.net/attansic/atl1_2.6.17.patch) in the src dir of the attansic driver, then recompile and reinstall it seems to work..... anyways it's best to go here:
