Hiya, have you considered some thing a bit radical ?
OK it may sound it but why not try Mandrake 8.2 or even 9.0 , instead.
8.2 is stable,the install is very easy,,,and the good bit is you dont
need to compile a kernel ,unless its something really wacky your
needing, as the distro kernel has all the modules already built.
Including all the Ham modules.
It will also update itself if you want it to, ie go and get the updates
and bugfixes and install them.

any way just a suggestion, as you were in the reinstall stage, Mandrake
was a Redhat clone at one stage, so you should see that much of a
difference apart from some very nice features
