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.

I am using a Dell Latitude D820 with FC5.  The wired network card is:
09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5752
Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
       Subsystem: Dell Unknown device 01cc
       Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 90
       Memory at dcef0000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
       Capabilities: <access denied>

Wireless network card from Dell True Mobile 1394:
0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Unknown device 4311 (rev 01)
       Subsystem: Dell Unknown device 0007
       Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 177
       Memory at dcffc000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
       Capabilities: <access denied>

Hope this helps.  I know the old Latitude 600m that I have worked with
the wired network card with FC3 and it is was also a Broadcom card.
