Ethernet Cards and Sound Cards


I can't get either one of these to work. I'm running on Red Hat 7.0 and I understand if I upgrade to version 7.1 it will support my soundcard but I don't know where to download it at..

My Ethernet card i'm not to sure about.
It's a Compaq iPAQ 10/100 Fast Ethernet PCI Card and I just can't seem to find anyone esle that had anything like that.

So my questions I guess are

Where can I get Red hat version 7.1 or higher?
and
How do I get my PCI Ethernet Card to work?

You can get RH 7.1 at most ISO mirror sites. I just checked at ftp.sunet.se and they have it.

The first step to getting your ethernet card to work is to find out what chipset it uses. That may require a bit of research on your part. You can also check the Ethernet HOW-TO at www.tldp.org

The path for the RH 7.1 ISO's (english) is:

/pub/Linux/distributions/redhat/redhat/redhat-7.1-en/iso/
