Intel Pro Wireless 2915ABG on Dell 700m laptop
I'm familiar with UNIX, having worked at a company where our SAS installation was on HPUX. Now I work at a marketing firm, and they are moving to RedHat LINUX. I was asked to train the staff on UNIX commands, which I did by having them install CYGWIN, in preparation for the new server.
I decided to try LINUX on my personal laptop. Since the firm is moving to RedHat, I chose the RedHat distro. The installation went smoothly, with one exception: it did not detect my Intel Pro Wireless 2915ABG network card. I cannot see this card as a choice in the Network Setup, and the OS does not see it. I've tried adding the hardware, but with no joy -- I cannot activate it, since it is not recognized.
I'm definitely a newbie with regards installing and using LINUX; all I know is UNIX commands and shell scripting -- which is of no use.
Any help would be appreciated! Of all the hardware to be without, this is the most crucial, since I cannot download a thing.
