I'll knock off an easy one. the 'SMP' kernel is for symmetrical multi-processing. It is only useful if your system has more than one CPU.
Explore the Core!

Yeah, but you missed one thing: why is it there?

The answer is because the CPU supports Hyper-Threading, making it appear as if there were two processors. Side note: from what I've read, you actually don't double your CPU capacity with HT, but gain (depending on software, compilation options, etc.) somewhere between 5 and 30% in increased performance. Generally, it doesn't seem to be worth it unless you're running high-performance servers.

- followed the instruction provided in the INSTALL file

- you have to be root to do the installation
- you need to install the development packages (gcc, etc...)
- you need the XP drivers for the usb devices

hope it helps
I downloaded the XP driver for WUSB54G and it comes as a winzip.exe file. What files do I need from this? Or can I use it as is on my linux install? I down loaded to an XP machine. I plan to write the driver and the tar.gz file onto a CD to get it to my Linux machine. Not sure wha the development packages referred to above are, nor how to install them after the original install from Fedora 3 disks.

Any help is much appreciated! Thanks.

What is the output from
#ndiswrapper -l

I fought with my WUSBG54 adapter for a long time but it is working great now.
