> hi, i'm running kernel 2.6.17, and want to install the v0.13 orinoco drivers. I'm running fedora fc5, and the original distribution orinoco drivers install fine, so i'm assuming they are version 0.15. a iwpriv revealed that monitor was not turned on. I downloaded the dragorn 0.13 drivers, removed the installed modules as the doc indicated and tried to "make" and got this:

Looks like redhat did something to their kernel and it isn't similar enough to a regular kernel. I don't run redhat, I have no idea.
