This is my first foray into the Linux world so please excuse my ignorance!
Its a brand new fresh system with P4 2.8, Gigabyte 8I915P, Highpoint 1820A Sata RAID 5, 1GB Corsair DDR2 with Redhat 9 2.4.20 installed
On installing it it has failed to recognise the onboard LAN (aswell as sound but not bothered about that). I checked gigabyte's site for drivers but 'shock horror' there are only 5 flavours of Windows to choose from.
Is there anywhere else I might be able to find drivers (its an onboad Broadcom 5789 NIC I believe)?
I also read somewhere here that Redhat 9 is an old distro now so would replacing that with something more recent like Fedora 4 automatically find the LAN?
Thanks for any help, I'm desparate to get this Linux thing working for me and Windows is whispering quietly from the other side of the room "Install me, I can solve your problem......."!!!
