RH9 on Inspiron 8500
 
Has anyone found a driver for the Broadcom 440x NIC driver on the Inspiron 8500? or a suitable substitute?

also if you do an insmod b44 it will autodetect the nic

Broadcom has a src file to build an rpm, which works wonderfully. Also, got the nvidia driver for the DDR chip set and got 1680x1050 resolution...thanks for all the help
