Skype told Karl to edit a file in /etc/modprobe.d. There is no such directory in Fedora. I was simply trying to make him aware that the file to edit was referenced differently in Fedora. In the case of Fedora the file is /etc/modprobe.conf for the 2.6 kernel as you well know. Why all the heat. Havn't you got anything better to do???? Nigel. btw. I do use both Debian, and Fedora distro's.
