FC4 T2 and Dell M70



Has any one had luck installing Fedora (3 or 4) on a Dell M70 laptop?  I just got one and wiped Window out first thing.  I was quite disappointed to learn sound and wireless were not supported out in FC4.  The audio is AC97 and the wireless is a Intel PRO/Wireless 2915 a/b/g.  I have searched the Internet and found where other users were able to get Suse or Ubuntu installled will little trouble.  I have Fedora 4 T2 installed.   No sound, I am still searching the Internet to get this addressed.  The wireless is very weird though.  The system does not see the built in wireless card at all.  When I insert my old Xircom wireless card the builtin Intel shows up - what's up with that?  My Xircom is not even listed.  I have down loaded the drivers from Intel and installed as indicated, still not luck.

My quesion is this, why does the builtin wireless card not show up until I put my old Xircom card?  Also why does the Xircom no work?  I am downloading the Suse live CD to see what happens.  I would rather stick with Fedora if I can get it to work with little effort.  I realize FC4 is still in testing so if I need to file a bug report I will.

Thank you,
