Fedora installations confused by NIC Cards


I plan to install Fedora on a Dell Dimension 24 with 2
Linksys PCI cards - both are model LNE100TX

After installation, where would I look to see if the install used
the correct drivers ?

Where would I look to see if the installion has the right drivers for these cards?

I'm asking this because I have tried a number of installations of Fedora and the Fedora installation seems confused by the cards. One card works, the other won't - the installation keeps dropping the netmask, loosing the MAC address of the cards.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi ELPDave.

How about system-config-network. That should list the make and model of the card(s) at the top of the first screen.

Good luck.
