I have Linux 6.0  with kernel 2.2.9 installed, I need to install a second nic and the eepro100.o file is compiled for 2.2.5-15, is it possible to make/convert it so that I can use it with 2.2.9?   If i try the "insmod" I get errors "wrong kernel can't read symblos"

Your options are:

1. Recompile the driver from source
2. Find a driver for the correct kernel
3. use insmod -f to force the load (i would NOT do this however, it most likely will bomb)
