I have just installed Red Hat Linux 7.1 and need help with drivers for my sound card, modem, and setting up my ethernet card. I have an H.P. Pavilion model 8562 with a rockwell riptide combo card listed on both the audio card and a modem. Are there any drivers available for these? I tried to set my ethernet card (HP10/100 baseT lan adapter) using the dhcp option, but when booting, it fails. This is the first time I have used Linux and need help badly!!!

well i have jsut installed on the hp pavillion 8545 which has a riptide card also and, no it won;t work in linux. tis a winmodem card (mine wouldn;t work in windows. hp provided a dud driver for it. when i called the support line they said there was a fixed driver that had to be used.............i was supposed to download it from their website :-) )

neway, i suggest getting a different modem, an externel one is the easiest.

the sound card is also a bit naf as well so i didn;t bother attempting it. i already had a sb live value card which is working. just fork out the 60 (or what ever dollars it costs) for one of the newer sb live cards or the other sb cards. most work really well in linux.

fraid i know nothing bout lan cards though but if it is a isa card you might need to use the isapnp tools (look in the how-tos) or if it is a pci one it might not work at all (you would have to use the pciutils).
