Description of Problem:  After a few days the system will refuse to install modules, which renders my drives useless.  It also refuses to install the modules for my Zip drivew which was working under 7.0 kernel 2.2.x.  The new kernel also does not access NTFS drives even after recompilation of the kernel  to ensure that all is in order.  Does RH 7.2 fix this problem?  I don't have internet access at home and therefore cannot download the new kernel onto my box. I need to take it home from the office via Zip disk which I now cannot access.  Any suggestion?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. None, wait a few days and it happens by itself

Actual Results:  Unusable system

Expected Results: A working box!

Additional Information: Running a Celeron 333, 248Mb Ram (8mb shared for display driver) 30Gb (partitioned 2 x 15GB)  dual boot with windows 95.  Linux partiotion is ext2 fs.  Network card, onboard sound, Zip drive (parrallel). 136 MB Swap space.  KDE Gui

Closing: Relates to now very obsolete kernel. If current errata still have the
problem please re-open. Thanks
