I have a problem which I see plenty of other people have had, and have received
So before skipping past this message or before you prepare to flog me, please
understand that I can kick ass on Windows like the best of them .. not to sound
conceited .. but I'm a complete virgin with Linux. That being said, its very
possible that I overlooked something simple.
The problem is that when I execute "make" from the madwifi folder (on the cdrom)
in the command window, I receive "Makefile.inc:113: *** KERNELCONF:
/lib/modules/2.4.7-10/.config does not exist.. Stop."
I'm running Redhat 7.2 Professional, and I'm trying to get a Linksys 802.11a+g
WPC55AG pcmcia card up and running.
Any help is appreciated.

Since MadWifi is a kernel driver, it needs to know about the kernel you
build it for. Apart from the kernel sources of the target kernel you will
also need the exact configuration that was used to build that kernel.
Usually Linux distros deliver this configuration either along with the
kernel binary (in that case the configuration often can be found in /boot)
or provide a package that contains the configuration.
However, that's very specific for each distribution, and personally I
don't know (and don't use) Redhat. But the distribution specific
installation guide in our wiki might be of help:
NB: Redhat 7.2 sounds pretty ancient, maybe you should consider to switch
to something newer. As a side effect you might benefit from eventually
provided ready-made packages for MadWifi.
