[hsflinux] Mandrake kernel naming

we do not currently provide pre-compiled RPMs for the '2.6.3-7mdk-i686-up-4GB' 
kernel of Mandrakelinux.

You must install the driver which match exactly your kernel version or else it 
is most likely to fail. For example, you can't copy the driver for the 
'2.6.3-7mdk' kernel to the '2.6.3-7mdk-i686-up-4GB' kernel.

As you suggested, you must use the generic package in the RPM format available 
from the HSF driver download page at


Before you install the package, please make sure that you have installed 
'gcc'. You should also install the 'kernel-source' package for the kernel you 
are currently running.

When you will install the HSF driver package, the module will automatically be 
compiled and installed for you if you have installed the packages mentioned 
in the last paragraph.

If the compilation failed at installation, please use the 'hsfconfig --kernel' 
command in a root shell to compile the driver.
