The drivers are kernel specific rather than Distribution specific. (Although
Red Hat applies so many patches to the kernel, you need to verify this
generality when using their distributions.) A simple test can help you.
Download the 2.4.20 kernel from ftp.kernel.org and take a look for yourself.
Personally, I would run that kernel on Red Hat 8.0, replacing the heavily
patched version that comes with Red Hat distributions. FYI, I believe the
latest 8.0 kernel update is a heavily patched 2.4.19 kernel.

cheers,
Karen
