That distro is from around 15 years ago, you would do yourself a favour by trying a more modern distro.
If your reasoning was that you have old equipment & thought an old distro was the way to go - wrong.
There are some very good modern distros specifically tailored for old equipment, such as Antix 13.2 (or MX 14.3).

Hi...

That's what I was thinking before I wrote my last post but I thought there might have been a chance the OP was talking about the Enterprise version, which was released later.

If the OP is indeed talking about the original version 5 or even 5.2, then yes, by all means, he should find a much more recent version of Linux, one that will most likely have the needed sound and Ethernet and/or wireless adapter drivers.

Regards...
