Unhappy Fedora 4 install failed to detect ethernet, sound cards


I have just installed Fedora 4, failed to detect and setup audio and ethernet.

NIC is Intel Pro/100 VE, e100b325.sys windows driver.

Audio is on the motherboard, SigmaTel high def controller? chipset is 82801GB, pentium 4.

since I'm a total newbie, how do I go about fixing this? thanx in advance.

Since Fedora 4 is now quite old, I would start by getting Fedora 6--or some other modern distro. Even Fedora 5 has installed smoothly whereever i have tired it.
