Installing Fedora with Asus MB on-board NIC

The Asus motherboards all seem to come with on-board networking, either Broadcom or NVIDIA. Does Fedora come with drivers for these (even generic ones) or would I be better off getting a separate 3Com NIC?

I am not sure, but you can find out the latest release of fedora core 4 is out on 6th June, an may be it has support for these devices!...

Which chipset do you have on your motherboard?

SiS or Nvidia (Graphics, Sound etc..)

Thanks. One of my machines has all NVIDIA while, I think, the other has Broadcom for the ethernet but NVIDIA for everything else.
