I have a DELL INSPIRON 6400 with MediaDirect. It was preloaded with Windows Vista. I have formatted the hard disk and just loaded Windows Xp on a partition while I loaded fedora linux on another partitioning. After the installation, whenever I boot it complains that some hardwares were found but it will not install them automatocalyy. I am unable to connect to the internett, mouse is not working, the graphics is very poor. I have tried some free downloaded drivers and utilities in Windows DELL site but it keeps saying that it was unable to connect and download a particular file. PLEASE I NEED HELP URGENTLY-------I THINK I NEED TO INSTALL THE ETHERNET CARD FIRST THEN I CAN DOWNLOAD ANY OTHER NECESSARY DRIVER
I have found a great description about setting up Lan and internet connection. It was discussed
very easily. And it was also working. i did the same thing,If you are facing the similar
problem i think you can solve this.
