Looking at Dell's website, it's unclear what the wired NIC is.  They use
the euphemistic "10/100/1000 Gigabit" description, which is almost
useless.

The wireless is EITHER an Intell PRO 3945A/G OR the Dell 1490.  I don't
think FC3 (or FC5 for that matter) has drivers for those.  You probably
need to use the Windows drivers under ndiswrapper.  See

	http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net

for details on that.  As to the wired NIC, do an "lspci -v" and see what
ethernet controllers you have.  We can advise you better that way.
