NIC installation in fedora running as virtual machine
Well I have gone through all the threads related to broadcom but couldn;t resolve the issue. I have a winxp machine with Broadcom 440x ethernet adapter. I am runnin fedora core5 as a virtual machine using vmware on my XP laptop.
I first installed fedora using NAT ethernet option and everything was fine, but as far as i know since NAT option does not directly access ethernet card i did not face this problem. As I changed my vmware setting to bridged connection in which case VM machine directly accesses the hardware I faced this problem.
Problem: fedora is detecting my ethernet card as some AMD pcinet device. It has b44 module in it which i know of but lsmod or lspci does not show my ethernet card original name. So basically i need to get my real broadcom card detected and installed on fedora.
If anyone can please help me .
