sound/graphic/network card on Fedora Core

I have actually just installed a fresh copy of fedora core release 5 (Bordeaux) Kernel 2.6.15-1.2054-FC5 on i686. I am using gnome desktop and the question i have is that i recently made this computer and has the cd with drivers for the intergrated sound and video cards but when i try to install them it won't let me from the CD. What should i do because the resolution is set to 800x600 and thats the most i can get and everything looks hella bad and BIG. so if anyone could please help me to install the drivers for sound and video and also the network card as well. Thank you

graphics card is nvidia geforce 6100 integrated and sound card doesnt really say because they are all integrated so i have checked it in the motherboard book but nothing about it neither it says anything about the LAN but that it has sound input and output and an integrated network adapter.

How to get your Hardware Info

You have to goto your computer manufacture's site and find out what hardware is installed on your box.

If you built your box, you need to goto the mother board manufacture's website and get the identifying specs for your mother board.

You can not configure a system without that information, unless you install an operating system that automatically probes your hardware and sets up the drivers needed automatically.
