Confused About Linux Compatibility

I am attempting to install a Linux RPM of Legato's Networker Backup
Client on FBSD 7.1 I do not know if this is possible but I hope so. :)
I have followed instructions in the Handbook and
http://www.linux.com/articles/53055. I am at the point of installing an
appropriate linux_base port and linux_base-f8 seemed like the most
recent/reasonable. However when I attempt to install, I get this output:
** Port marked as IGNORE: emulators/linux_base-f8:
compat.linux.osrelease: 2.4.2 is not supported
** Listing the failed packages (-:ignored / *:skipped / !:failed)
Further Google searches suggest that compat.linux.osrelease is a sysctl
setting. I've seen reference to setting it to 2.6.16 but also that this
is experimental. I found http://wiki.freebsd.org/linux-kernel but this
leaves me confused as well.
Bottom line, what linux_base port should I install and do I need to set
this sysctl to something? I'm confused...
