I'm running Fedora Core 2 (2.6.7..) on a Dell Inspiron 2600 laptop with an Orinoco Gold 802.11b card. I have been trying to run Kismet, but I get lost when I need to update the Orinoco drivers. (Basically I'm a linux newbie.) I've compiled, installed and configured Kismet, but it fails because I need a newer device driver for the Orinoco card. The kismet site links me to a page with the patches for the Orinoco drivers, but I'm not sure which files to use and what to do with them. The patch site has files like "orinoco_cs_o", but I have files like "orinoco_cs_zo" in my tree. I've googled a few times looking for a tutorial on patching linux drivers, but I'm still not figuring it out.
Can anybody direct me to an online tutorial on this?
