Whenever you are posting requesting help to get a piece of hardware working you should include information about the specific piece of hardware. You can get that information usually by using one of three commands.
- Information about the motherboard and any cards plugged into PCI, AGP, or PCI Express slots
- Get information about a card plugged into a PCMCIA slot
- get information about a device plugged into a USB port.
In your case lspci would be appropriate. could you open a terminal issue the lspci
command and post the output here ?
I'm rather surprised Fedora 8 did not automatically detect and configure the network card for DHCP.
your network card is a broadcom card, that would use the b44 module.
The wireless card in that laptop is also broadcom (BCM4318 AirForce One 54g) and would use the bcm43xx module or ndiswrapper.
Which one are you trying to configure ? and does lspci show my assumptions about your Network interfaces as being correct ?
Drivers for your Network interfaces should be in the Fedora repository, or already loaded.
/boot/grub/menu.lst is the file you would edit to change the Title from 'Other' to 'Win XP'
