I'd first try the RPM install I gave your (the yum command) and see how it goes. If that doesn't work, then I'll help you out with manually compiling as it's usually much more difficult and complicated to compile a program like this by hand rather than RPM install it.

Yeah -- In that case, then try downloading this file:
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...6-0.1.i386.rpm
(It take it you're in i386 / 32bit there. If you're using 64bit, then use
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...0.1.x86_64.rpm
this file instead.)
Put it onto a CD or pendrive, then transfer it to your home in Fedora. Then, open up a terminal and type:
Code:
su
rpm -Uhv iscsi*.rpm
Reboot, and it should work.

i also dowloaded kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.src.rpm and tried to install it with

Install the SRC.RPM file and Prepare source

Install the kernel.src.rpm that you chose to install in the previous steps.

Install:
[root@charon fc5]# rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5.src.rpm
1:kernel ########################################### [100%]

Set it up:

[root@charon fc5]# rpmbuild -bp --target=noarch /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec

The source files will be properly located in '/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.15/'
There are 2 useful directories:
'linux-2.6.15.noarch/'
This will have the standard kernel.org kernel WITH Fedora patches and updates
'vanilla/'
This will have the standard kernel.org kernel ONLY (no patches or updates)


now wat should i give path to make KSRC=??????????


did i do right or wrong?????

OK, you're kernel is out of date. Yum update your system:
Code:
yum update
Next, reboot and type:
Code:
yum install iscsi-inititator-utils
It's not iscsi-target-utils, which is why it gave you errors.

Also, like I said earlier, please wait for now as getting that iscsi source package installed will be troublesome, this is much easier.

i guess i would succeed only if i understand correctly how to give source path :

proabaly------> make KSRC= /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.15/linux-2.6.15.noarch

i could not find make KSRC="/usr/src/kernels/$(uname -r)" given by you there is no directory called kernel.

so plz help me and i belive if this step is finished we will have success installin iscsi.

Ah... I'm not sure what you have done now...
Anyways, 2054 is NOT the newest kernel -- Run yum update again...
So, did iscsi-initiator-utils install?

Please -- Don't post 3 things in a row, worst comes to worst that's what the 'edit' function is for... I can understand if you want your question answered ASAP, but do does everyone else here!

Anyways, you definetly need the newest kernel as the 2054 one has a bug that will prevent you from loading certain modules, and this one (iscsi) may be one of those blocked ones.

If you type
Code:
uname -r
and see a 2080 kernel, then you're OK to go. If not, then running
Code:
yum update
will get you up to date. You'll have to reboot to load the newest one.

Next, now because you have iscsi-initiator-utils installed, you can mount iscsi drives with the proper configuration. I can't help out there, but the capability is now installed so you do not need to compile it from source
