Replacement Fedora Core 2 i686 kernels with 16K stack size

Please choose the package most closely matching your system's kernel version below.

You can determine your kernel version with the following case-sensitive shell command:

uname -r

The default stack size in original Fedora Core 2 kernels is only 4K. Because some Windows drivers require at least 12K of stack to operate properly, we recommend using a kernel with a larger stack size if you experience problems or crashes. You can either rebuild your own custom kernel, or install one of the "stk16" kernels below which we have provided for your convenience. They are essentially identical to the Fedora kernels, except that the stack size was increased to 16K and the problematic 4G/4G patch removed.

User comment:

I was disheartened when I found out my new Dell D600's wireless wouldnt work under linux. I found the linuxant site by searching mailing lists and gave the driverloader a try. All I can say is WOW! Since I'm running Fedora I grabbed the generic, build on the fly rpm. It installed fine, compiled, gave me the option quickly about licensing it. Once I applied the 30 day trial I was up and chugging along with no issues. Tonight I installed a test kernel and reinstalled the driver, compliled flawlessly and I was up and going in minutes. Talk about being impressed. After that, I went and registered the full version. Great work guys, things like this really showcase the hard work of the Linux Community and the power of open source. I know many people think all things linux should be free as in beer rather than free as in speech, but all the work isnt necessarily free as in beer. Keep up the good work, I'm proud to be a supporter of this project. Thanks for the driver!
