I think my orginal question got completely off track.
I am using TurboLinux Server 6.0, not Red Hat anything.
I have been to the web site listed above and followed the directions for the
RPM installation and the individual driver installation and I am doing
something wrong because neither work. I think that people who write these help
files assume a certain minimum level of knowledge of linux because I get error
messages galore when I try the instructions above.
All I want to do is get my linux version (kernel 2.2.14-3) to see my LNE100TX
version 4.0 so I can get my other computer connected to the internet as well.
Any help on this topic will be greatly appreciated.
