Thanks for the information. It looks as if this motherboard is a nForce 2. From the Chaintech website ->
Chipset

* NVIDIA nForce2 IGP + nForce2 MCP

So this is the link for your drivers ->
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0261

Just read the information and follow the instructions. I don't have this type of chipset, and I'm not using RedHat. You may want to check our RedHat forum and see if there's anything posted there. However, I believe reading the README - HTML Version file at the Nvidia site will give you all the information you need.

Can you please post the output of ->

# lspci

The # means that in the bash shell you are running as su (superuser). I have never seen Fedora, but open a terminal. If you have it available, xterm will do just fine. If you've logged in as a normal user, which you should have done, your prompt will be a $ and all you need to do is type su and then give it your root password. Then at the # type lspci and post that here.

Just a minor error on your part. The lspci command starts with a lower case L. You could copy and paste from the post into your terminal if that would help. I believe it stands for list pci.

Well, I'm so busy multi-tasking here that I didn't even think about you not being online. So soon we'll also have to deal with your other question ->

for which there will be more questions. Let's get your nic detected first. I know nothing about Fedora, so I hope Slack help will work.

So that we have some information, while you're in Windoze and actually online, try to find out how you're connected to the internet. You can just double-click on your little computer icon in the system tray and click on your nic and then double-click on TCP/IP and see if it says to detect automatically, or if there are numbers entered. If there are, then write them down. Forgive the lack of technical jargon, but I don't know your level of knowledge. You'll let us know if you need more help, though.

Did you enter lspci as root the way I suggested? I'm not familiar with Fedora, but I can't imagine that it doesn't have this command. If it really doesn't, dump it and get Slack

I'm trying to find out what's in there from your comment

And what do you mean by "it automatically detects my ip?"

Two things.

First, I've been searching LQ and reading so maybe I can give you some useful help. So read this thread http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=114014 and see if it doesn't help you. Especially post #10. I'd really like to see you have a pleasant experience with *nix. I've used Windoze for many years; and I presently build and repair computers. I've had a belly full of Micro$loth, and am migrating to Linux. I'm getting Wine setup right now to use PageMaker under Slackware. It's one of the programs I need, that seems to have no replacement in open source software.

Second, what does your nick mean? I've got an idea, but one thing I've learned from living in China. Don't think you can figure something out just by looking.

You'll have to explain. I don't have a clue what a mmolrpg is, or what that means. Maybe I'm a bit slow

How is your problem at the moment?

I fell asleep


problems not fixed yet but found out why i had 2 cards showing. I had installed a few at the xdsl connect wizard when none showed at the start and never uninstalled the last 1 i tried


i did the ppp0 thing the other post said now i get this message when i click the activate or connect button


its in a red hat-config-network (window)

cannot activate network device ppp0

/sbin/adsl-start:line 215: 4275 Terminated $ conect "$@" >/dev/null 2>&1



o and a mmolrpg is a massive multi-player on-line role playing game

there lots of fun and extremely addictive.

here are some links of a few good 1's
my favorite:asherons call
http://ac.turbinegames.com/

then theres ever-quest, the Sim's, Star wars

and soon the makers of asherons call are making one based on the lord of the ring

thanks again for the help
