My kernel tree only has 1 version of cipcb.o in it. 

ie: .../drivers/addon does not exist in my current kernel tree.

Furthermore, if I attempt to insmod cipcb from an older kernel tree, I
get the following:

[root@.../cipe]# /sbin/insmod ./cipcb.o
./cipcb.o: kernel-module version mismatch
        ./cipcb.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.18-18.8.0
        while this kernel is version 2.4.21-pre4.

It appears that I've got the right cipcb.o for the kernel.  I think what
you are saying is that the cipe daemon doesn't like the version of the
cipe module.  How does one get the version of the module ? lsmod -V
gives you the version of lsmod, not the module itself.

I'm at a loss how to do this.  I installed cipe 1.4.5-11 from an
internet RPM because I thought that cipe on the client and cipe on the
server were different versions.

I could uninstall the rpm and reinstall cipe from my RH cds easily
enough.  However, the problem will still be there as this was why I
installed from the rpm in the first place. 

Question: when one installs from the rpm, does it install a new kernel
module ?  I guess not.  How then can one install cipe from an rpm if it
must match the kernel ?
