I have just installed Red Hat linux version 8 onto my PC. However i would like to configure my Sony CD-RW drive which is on a Tekram 315 PCI SCSI card. I have found drivers for the card on Tekrams site. It it a tar.gz archive which i extracted to my home directory. It leaves two file a *.c file and *.h file.
The instruction are here ftp://ftp.tekram.com/scsi/3X5/Linux/Redhat/Redhat70/readme.txt
. However i cannot understand them - and it make references to installing the OS. I especially don't want to follow some of the instructions when they refer to Rh7 when i'm running rh8, and don't really want to re-install.
So i'm kinda stuck - i don't know where to go from here. So any suggestions would be appreciated. Please keep in mind I'm new to linux so the KISS prinicapl applies.
