A patch is for the source code, which you then must compile and link to
get the executable. If abi was distributed with RH 7.1, you can probably
get the source from the Red Hat source CD or their website; otherwise from
the abi website. Make sure you understand what version of abi the patch
is for and what kernel (2.4.3?) it's meant to be used with.
