It's not there.  Course,  I can probably find the module on the web, and I will take a look.

Since you've done a number of installs for this card, how'd you get around the hang problem?  Reason I ask is that I'd like to go with a later version that Red Hat 8...just downloaded Tao Linux but exact same behavior.

If it were simply a driver problem, it would seem I could get it to prompt me for the driver disk during install, but after typing "linux dd", it still hangs just after decompressing the boot image :(.

Have you seen even remotely similar behavior in your installs for this card?
