Hi Alan - 

The I2C code is not part of the standard kernel yet, as far as I know. 
Since the 2.4.5 RPMs I made are just standard kernel code, no other
additions, the I2C stuff won't be there.  If you need it, grab the Red
Hat / 2.4.2 RPMs, or patch the 2.4.5 kernel yourself with both our XFS
patches and the I2C sensor patches.
