Need fedora 7 drivers for INTEL 82566DC-2 Gigabit Network Connection


Basically my subject title is my question. I need the driver(s) to connect to the internet to find updates, apps, etc, for Fedora 7. I have Vista Business edition as my primary OS and am trying to do a dual boot with Fedora 7.

I've never used Linux before, so I don't really know what I'm doing.

Anyway, I upgraded my HP Pavillion from Home Premium to Business and had to a web search for the recntly released Windows driver (summer release), since the Business edtion didn't recognize my NIC. Of course I had to restore my Vista to Home Premium to search the web, then reinstalled the Business edition after I found the Windows driver. Oh well.

Any suggestion on what I can do?

Thanks for your help (I hope).

Hi, and welcome to LQ

I don't know fedora, and I don't know your network card. Have you looked
at any of these?



Cheers,
Tink
