no network device?!?!
hi, Iīm new to Linux and I installed last week Fedora Core on my laptop. Now I have got a few problems:

Fedora canīt initialize my network devices.

Iīve got an ethernet card: īIntel(R) PRO/1000MT mobile connectionī
Iīve also got an wireless card: 'Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 21003B Mini PCI Adapter'

Can someone tell me how I can get these devices working? I donīt know much about computers, so I hope that you can tell me how to solve this problem.

Fedora has detected my audio device and it works properly, but I canīt hear my MP3īs of CDīs with my audioplayer. Does someone know whatīs going on here?

I hope someone can help me!

modules = drivers (Windows like) ;)

Where can I find such modules, and how do I have to install these modules?

You have to download/compile it..

With the kernel sources, you have these modules :P

What application are you trying to play MP3s and CDs? I believe that RH didn't include the plugin for MP3s. You will need to download the latest xmms version in order to play audio CDs using digital audio extractions.
