Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
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.
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.
