I myself have an "autodetect" cable as well, but nevertheless I have to use
the old ppa driver ( but it works great - anyway). Don't know if you
REALLY have to use imm.

It is missing, because you have never compiled the kernel on your system before.
But no problem: You do not have to perform the whole compilation procedure -
it is enough (I think), if you do just a

        make xconfig

under /usr/src/linux/
change nothing and save and exit.

Maybe you have to install the kernel sources at first, because redhat's
default installation always leaves out the sources...; it's an rpm, not an src.rpm, by the way.

Bye, Juergen.

Oops, I don't know of any precompiled version...
