Sorry, maybe I didn't make myself clear.  I'm performing a clean
install from a woody CD onto a new machine.  To get the network card
to work I need a 2.4 kernel, but to get a 2.4 kernel I need the
network card. . . So I was hoping there was a way to get a 2.4 kernel
onto the CD so I could boot from it, rather than 2.2.19.

Thanks,

Chris
