Hello group.  Would someone please assists me?  I am trying to get
linux loaded up so I can once again restart the K5PLD-Node.  But...

For some reason, I cannot get the kernel compiled correctly.

Here the pc and its basic information.
	450 mmx pent I
	128K memory
	diamond video
	Realteck NIC card
	NO sound card is used

Here the problems I have been having
	1)	When I load Redhat 7.0, it installs perfectly
	2) But when I try to make the kernel, Kernel 2.2.22
		.....Never sees the Nic Card.  Not even in the ./config file. 
There is NO Option to enable the card
		....Does not make the mod.dep file under /lib/modules

		I've tried many other version of this Kernel too.

	I tried upgrading to Redhat 7.1 Kernel 2.4.2
	The pc starts ok with no problems
	But...When I compile Kernel 2.4.9 or any other Kernel, (including
the 2.4.2) the PC LOCKS up!  I set it up JUST LIKE THE HOWTO-AX25
Our node has been down all week due to these problems.  I have
checked and recheck the kernel "make xconfig" files over and over.
I just do not know where to go from here.

Any and all helpful assistance is deeply appreciated.  K5PLD is the
Pearland Amateur Club here in Pearland Texas.  And because of the
outage, the DX for the greater Houston area is OUT of SERVICE.  We
serve the complete area of Houston and outlining Area of Houston.

I am out of ideas on what to do to get the kernel setup correctly.

thank you again for any and all helpful input!
