None of the drivers will compile on the current kernels? Last time i used FC i had Core 2 but i updated. Guess i should downgrade to CORE3 or rather which kernel version should i use? or is it possible for me to compile the standalone drivers and force them into the current version?

Sorry, i'm sure you hear it a million times; im newb!
