Linux Fedora FC4 on Dell Dimension 5100

I just bought a Dell Dimension 5100 with a P4 3Ghz. I did not go with anything fancy/expensive so I chose to use the standard chipsets on the motherboard as sound card, Ethernet and graphics accelerator.

FC4 does not recognise these devices, so I end up on a brand new machine with no Ethernet and no sound :-(

In GNOME I tried to install several drivers from Intel but none works. I also researched on the web but could not find any help on finding the right driver for the Ethernet interface on the motherboard, except on a page about a Siemens PC with a similar motherboard and for which selecting the "Broadcom Tigon" works. But it does not work on the Dell Dimension 5100.

I spend a day already and I feel really stuck.

Can anyone help please?

I've got the same problem. And there's more than 2 weeks already that I can not find drivers for the integrated video.
