from kernel docs, you are going to need:
Gnu C 220.127.116.11 # gcc --version
Gnu make 3.77 # make --version
binutils 18.104.22.168.25 # ld -v
util-linux 2.10o # kbdrate -v
modutils 2.3.18 # insmod -V
e2fsprogs 1.19 # tune2fs --version
pcmcia-cs 3.1.21 # cardmgr -V
PPP 2.4.0 # pppd --version
isdn4k-utils 3.1beta7 # isdnctrl 2>&1|grep version
for modutils, i have just taken the SRPMS from redhat 7.2/7.3 and rebuild it. i
also build a 2.4.18, but haven't time to reboot with it ;-)
