Isn't the BCOM_WAN_V20_SOURCE_A.tar.gz is the source for RH 7.2/7.3 stock
kernels ? Since RH 8.0 uses gcc 3.x as opposed to RH 7.2/7/3 using gcc 2.x,
you "might" have problems trying to insmod or modprobe the newly compiled
driver on 2.4.18-18.7.x  because of the "gcc2_compiled" symbol. Are you at
least getting this far or are you having problems building the driver
