Why just Fedora 8 ? The newest release is Fedora 12. The compatibility and automatic drivers configuration is being upgraded from one release to another, so it's better to get the most upgraded which is Fedora 12 for today.
If you choose Fedora 8 because of a reason, let us now first what network card you are using - type
lshw -C network
in your terminal and paste the output here please.
