As you can see in my specific case, it seemed that the issue I had was an old 
driver from a company bought out but another company who provided improved 
code for this NIC chipset for Linux which resulted in old and new drivers 
spread across multiple OSes.

I was lucky that Chris Shook came to my rescue, otherwise I'd be deeply 
frustrated.  It seems to me, that you may need to post your friend's issue in 
a separate thread, with the proper subject line and detail the issue and 
supply the Linux 'modinfo <driver>' and the 'lsmod | grep <driver>' as well 
as the drivers used in XP (and any other Multiboot OSes drivers) in the email 
message body and also posit that you believe it is a driver conflict problem 
OR use Fedora's bugzilla and pray that someone who is working on that 
specific driver sees your post and will respond.
