I did not use the generic package.  The rpm does seem to work
(although it give various error messages each time I re-install).
How do I tell if I have the kernel module compiled?  (A "few
minutes" might be the 60 sec I referred to.  This is a very fast
computer.)  And, if it isn't compiled, how do I force it?
(Installing the RPM with the -U switch is what I usually do.)
