Wink Using Dell XPS M1330 Problem with the sound and wireless card Drivers


I am using Dell XPS M1330 and i installed RH enterprise 5.1 and everything is working great except the sound and Wireless. I downloaded the rpm for sound drivers and Wireless and not able to install them it shows Dependencies issues and i also tried to download the Dependencies modules and still it didn't help

Wireless card on Laptop is : Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
Sound card is : SIGMATEL - Driver

Please help me out with this. I would really appreciate

Best regards

This site should help:

It appears Intel has a better driver available now than the IPW2200 for your card.

I use Ubuntu Hardy Heron and I have been very impressed with how it handles wireless cards. Mine is broadcom based and they can be a pain to get going but Ubuntu found the drivers and all I needed to do was extract the firmware and put it into the /lib/firmware folder.
