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.


Thank you for your response Dan and will do what I can then
