Compiling problems with RedHat

Couple of questions.
1. Which version of Redhat (I'm guessing 8, but just to make sure)
2. Can you post the actual compiler error(s)?

I won't say "It works for me", but it does, so gonna need more help from
you to identify the actual problem.

Quick note. There is a problem with hostap_pci and RH8.0 kernel 2.4.18-17
that causes a kernel panic when loading hostap_2002-10-12. The problem
seems to go away with the 2.4.18-18 kernel.
