Hardware drivers not found for Dell OptiPlex 755 in Fedora 3

Hi !

I have Dell optiplex 755 Desktop with Network Interface - Intel® 82566DM Gigabit Ethernet LAN solution 10/100/10004 with Remote Wake Up, PXE support and Intel Active Management Technology support . I installed Fedora Core 3 in the system but the network driver and the graphics driver is not supported.

Can anyone please tell me where to find these drivers for my Fedora core 3.
I have Fedora core 8 installed in one of my system but I want to build my application in Fedora 3 to get the kernel support of 2.6.9 minimum.

how will I start networking in my Fedora 3 system. Please help me.

You will find the HW drivers in the latest vanilla kernel.

Realise this: FC3 is obsolete. There is nobody supporting it.
Change to a recent distro - latest fedora is release 9.
