Thanks for all your help, I got what I need. I tried kernel 2.6.8
once, but it does not work well with my hardware, so I've sticked to
2.4.xx kernel.

I tried some googling on the subject, but found nothing. If there are
several postings on this subject, I apologize. I just didn't look

Anyway, thanks!   Cheers, Vegard
