Hardware detection?

I am having 1 D-Link Ethernet NIC but it seems didnt auto detect by the OS. I am using fedora core 2, is there any way to detect Hardware in linux? Any of the services can be use?

Anyone knows, please help.....

hi there,

this is tricky. you need to check if the fc kernel has your hardware. probably not as builtin. then must be at least as module.
you can use something like hotplug to try do detect hardware.
your question is a bit general. i would divide in steps:
1. check the kernel. module or builtin?
2. possible to use hotplug?

i saw already a lot of threads here in LQ about that. you could try a refined search also.
