By the looks of it the kernel has not been updated, strange as it
installed
with no problems!
The only explanation I can think of for this is that you downloaded
and
installed the SRPM (.src.rpm) instead of the binary RPM for your
system's architecture (e.g. .i386.rpm or .x86_64.rpm).

The kernel I downloaded was kernel-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5.i586.rpm, I tried
this one as I could not find an i386 one.
That's because there isn't one :-)

You may well have an i686 kernel currently:

$ rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n' kernel\*

The latest kernel update should always be available here:
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/5/i386/

Get the one that's the same arch as your current kernel.

Ok, I have now managed to install the kernel update and rebooted.  But I
still dont have the n_hdlc module which is required by the eciadsl driver!
I was told that the n_hdlc module was in the latest kernel update!, any
ideas as to how I can get the n_hdlc module?
You said that before but hadn't actually got the new kernel installed.
I have now managed to install the kernel update, third time lucky!

What's the output of:

$ rpm -qa kernel\*
kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5
kernel-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5

$ uname -a

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/kernel

$ cat /etc/grub.conf

$ rpm -ql kernel | grep n_hdlc
Does not output anything!

Seems the kernel has been updated but still no n_hdlc module!

Many thanks,
Garry.
