Problem installing Promise SATA300-TX4 Card

hi all

i am a bit new to fedora (and linux) and i want to install this card (Promise SATA300-TX4) to my pc. I am running F12 x86_64. I searched already in the forum but it doesnt really helped.

I downloaded the driver and in the readme stands a list of the supported kernel versions:
RedHat 7.2 kernel 2.4.7-10
RedHat 7.3 kernel 2.4.18-3
RedHat 8.0 kernel 2.4.18-14
RedHat 9 kernel 2.4.20-8
SuSE 7.3 kernel 2.4.10
SuSE 8.0 kernel 2.4.18
SuSE 8.1 kernel 2.4.19
SuSE 8.2 kernel 2.4.20
SuSE 9.0 kernel 2.4.21-99
N/A kernel 2.4.x (kernel compiled by yourself)

How can i look up if my kernel has the right version?. I think i have Version (cat /proc/version).
Now the installation:

Building and Installation

<1. Get the latest Promise SATAII150/300 series linux driver tar file and move it to
< the directory of your choice. For example, use: /usr/local/src/pdc-ulsata2


<2. Untar/unzip the archive by entering the following command.

< #tar xvfz pdc-ulsata2.tgz

-i think i did this (just extracted it)

<3. Change to the driver source directory.
< For example, use: /usr/local/src/pdc-ulsata2

< #cd /usr/local/src/pdc-ulsata2

i copied the driver to .../src/

<4. Compile SATAII150/300 linux driver.


< compile driver source code and get `ulsata2.o'

< #make

5. Install the driver module.

#cp -f ulsata2.o

6. Load the driver module.

#insmod ulsata2

I dont know how to to 4. to 6. Has anyone experience with this card (already installed it) and is able to help me here?.

thanks claus
