Installation of Ethernet drivers


Recently we bought lenovo thinkcentre M70e (4089AD4) systems.After installing fedora8,it is not taking the ethernet drivers. The adapter is intel gigabit ethernet and manually selected the drivers but no luck. After this i ran fedora13 live on that machine.It had taken the drivers.
So,is there any way of installing the required drivers on fedora8 instead of 13.

well your first very big problem is fedora 8

there is NO software for it ( the current firefox will not work) .
It is a very old and very dead and unsupported version .
There is no support for any new hardware in it ,seeing as it has not had any updates in 2+ years .

please install the current version of fedora
fedora 14

also keep in mind that fedora is a very fast research and development distro and releases a very new and very different version every 6 months
Also only supports any one version for only 13 months
