DRAC driver from source

Hi Linux gurus!
I am trying to install the DRAC module for the latest Redhat kernel -
I have installed the source - "DRAC-Driver-2.5.0-1.src.rpm", then I try to do
a "rpm -bb DRAC-Driver.spec" and get the error message
"In file included from src/MegaRacDrvrLx.c:35:
linux/malloc.h is deprecated, use linux/slab.h instead."
Temporary commenting out the #error in malloc.h (as it includes slab.h) makes
the module compile.
When trying to insmod the module I get the following error message
"Warning: loading rac.o will taint the kernel: no license
See http://www.tux.org/lkml/#export-tainted for information about tainted
rac.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg"
I then try force load it, and end up with the following error message.
"/lib/modules/2.4.18-27.7.xsmp/kernel/misc/rac.o: init_module: No such device"
and "kernel: DRAC not found on PCI bus" in syslog.
I am sure the the DRAC is working, I have configured it at start up
(Control-D) and succefully logged in with root / calvin through the web
Any ideas appreciated....
Thanks in advance
