I'll second that! and even smaller amongst us

I've downloaded the netdriver-2.0.src and run
rpm -i on the file. Becker's site says that I
have to rebuild the kernel now. Is there some
cheatsheet instruction on howto rebuild and
install the SuSE kernel anywhere? Or can you
give me the cookbook instructions? (eg)

% cd /usr/src/linux
% make kernel; install kernel;
% reboot...

...Can't be that simple, but whatever.

thanks for the driver info!!
