Problems with Debian Installation!


I have a System Running with Windows XP/ Redhat 8.0 I wanted to add Debian to it

Well I managed to install debian and got grub to load all three.

Now I have some big problems

My system is a Dell Optiplex GX260

I have a static IP, I set up the nameservers and all the rest of the stuff in the /etc/network/interfaces and my names servers are also set up correctly but I cannot use the net, i couldnt find the intel 100/1000 card driver in debian install

Also I cannot get Xserver up cause I have an intel 845G graphics display for which I have the driver but when I run the script it asks for latest kernel modules

What can i do to sort this mess out????

I assume that the network works for redhat? if so check the /etc/modules.conf file and see what module it uses, for my dell its:
alias eth0 3c59x

when you find the right module;
modprobe name
then add a file containing your network card (alias eth0 [I[nic[/I]) into your modupdate folder (sorry I dont have access to my debian system right now so the modupdate folder name could be called something different, but it basically the same) and run modupdate (sorry same applys but someone will correct me if I'm wrong) , this updates your modules.conf file (do not add alias eth0 straight into your modules.conf file as debian always uses the files in the modupdates)

When you installed debian did you use the default install method?
disks 1-5 have different kernels on, disk 5 uses 2.4xx the others use 2.2xx.
If you did install woody by default your going to have to compile a new kernel Im affriad
