I am running linux redhat fedora on a centrino based notebook and everything is fine except for two things

Wireless network interfaces sometimes won't install automatically because of proprietary drivers but we should be able to help ya. We just need some information on the chipset it uses. Do you know the brand or chipset? Is it internel or is it card based. Type "lspci" (without quotes) in a terminal and copy/paste the output here so we will have some information.

As for your internel fax modem, it is most likely a winmodem. Those can be real tricky to set up (if possible). Again, lspci output will help us with that too.
