SuSE 10.0 on HP Pavilion dv 1000

The laptop I am using is a HP Pavilion dv1000, a laptop. I am a on and off Linux user. I have some experience with the Linux environment. I have installation experience with: FC1, FC2, FC4, Mepis, Knoppix, and CentOS (all were installed on a desktop). So, I thought that SUSE would be a relatively easy Linux distro to install compared to the ones I have installed before. However, I encountered a hardware setup problem during the installation process.

This is my first time installing a Linux onto a laptop computer. I have just installed SUSE onto my HP Pavilion laptop. While going through the installation, it seems that SUSE was able to detect all my devices. However, some of the devices dont seem to be functioning properly. The devices that I know dont work as of now is: the sound card, ethernet card(built-in), and my wireless.

The device according to each device under Windows XP Pro is as follows:

Wireless Device: Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
Ethernet Device: Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
Sound Device: Conexant AC Audio ( not too sure, but its the a built-in on

I just installed SuSE 10 on my new Toshiba Satellite and had the similar problems (OS will detect and configure the cards, but I could not get an IP address) with my network and wireless cards. The only work around I could find was to disable ACPI before booting up.

Hope this helps.
