the latest version of the driver ( will not have HDA support 
when used with a 2.6.17 or later kernels. A patch for this issue can be 
installed with the 'hsfconfig --patch' in a root shell. This issue will 
also be fixed in the next release of the driver.

Please also note that you are trying to use the driver on a 4K stacks 
kernel according to the driver package you are currently using and in 
some cases, the HSF driver requires more than that. This can lead to 
system instability or even complete system crashes.

We offer pre-compiled RPMs of Fedora Core 5 kernels with 16K stacks as a 
convenience for our users. You can obtain these kernels at:

i586: http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads-fc5-kernel-i586.php
i686: http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads-fc5-kernel-i686.php

Then, install the kernel and reboot in this new kernel. Finally download 
and install the HSF driver package for this new kernel version. You can 
also obtain it from the HSF driver download page at:
