Thanks very much.
That was indeed the problem.
I had forgotten to "yum update" after installing Fedora-9
from the KDE Live CD on my large (250GB) new disk.

This installation was one up on Windows,
since the Fedora installation to hard disk went without any problems,
while after installing Windows XP on this ThinkPad T43
neither ethernet nor WiFi was working.
I had to use a PCMCIA-to-ethernet card to run Windows Update.
