I wanted to report that I have version 3.1 of the TechniSat 
AirStar-HD5000-PCI working!

My base distribution is FC3.  I downloaded kernel 2.6.13.2 from 
kernel.org, patched with the hd5000.patch and did make oldconfig based 
on the redhat fc3 .config.  Everything complied and installed fine.

The patch complained a bit, but the complaints were of no consequence. 
The one hunk that failed was a change made in a comment block so it 
didn't matter.  Here is the output:

At this stage, I followed the instructions in:

(Except for the step about nxt-2002 firmware.  That is not needed)

Thanks to the developers!
