    The machine in question does not yet have the kernel source code installed,
    so this is my first task. I have downloaded the file from the matrix,
    sg3117_lk241.tgz, can you confirm this is the right file for a 2.4.3-20
    kernel and 6.1.8 current scsi driver.

    I have not yet done a kernel rebuild, so I am a bit nervous about doing it
    without reading some instructions first. I have a red hat book which I am
    studying at the moment...before trashing my system.

    I will let the mailing list know what happens.

    Thanks, Dave.
