Sorry for replying twice with the same thing.

I have yet another problem. I plugged in the Ethernet cable and it doesn't want to connect wired as well. OMG!

If you plugged the cable while Fedora was running,leave it there and reboot.

That's exactly what I did...reboot while the cable was plugged in. I will try again.

If that ain't workin' try to set wired connection with the network manager.System>Administration>Network.I hope that you know your gateway address and you're probably using DHCP.Check your settings in Windows.As I remember you have Windows?You can run ipconfig in Windows from the cmd,or you can check "Network settings" or whatever it's called now.

So,you're sayin' that Fedora (DVD) can't establish wired connection?But it worked before when you were using live cd.Is this connection working in Windblows?
Blackberry can be used as a modem,at least in Windblows AFAIK,maybe it's possible in Linux but configuring it here(if it's possible) would take another 10,20 or 50 posts,so I'd say that is better if we try to fix this wired connection in Fedora.Post the output of ifconfig -a.Also try to ping your router/modem or some ip address.Maybe it would be time saving if you install Fedora from the live cd again.

I think that it would be best to forget the whole dual boot and just go VMWare. This is not working at all.

You didn't tried to ping your router/modem.What you want to do is your choice,but after all this trouble,before/if you give up from the dual boot,you can try one more time to run live cd and see will there be a wired connection available,if so then we can install the driver that you need.I think that with VMWare there might be problems too.BTW,the output above shows that there's no any kind of connection there.

Ok, I can try the Live CD one more time. I just finished trying to run vmware and it did work. I have an internet connection.

Now...I have allocated 10GB for Fedora. I could just install it again on this partition, right? Clean install?

Yes,just format it with ext3 file system and install GRUB bootloader on the MBR.My advice is to create separate partitions for /home and swap if that is not a problem for you.Also,all Linux partitions should be logical,so that you avoid any conflicts and possible problems with Windblows.
