SubjectRe: netgear ga621 / ns83820
Sure, I have it up using the netgear driver version 1.02 on 2.4.16.  I
didn't have any problems with compiling the driver against 2.4.16 with
the same options that you list. Previous to this it was working fine on
2.4.11-pre6. The only obvious difference I can see is that you are
using modversions and I am not.
