OK this is NOT a major issue since I can always shove a pccard in the laptop but...

my laptop has a

Marvell Yukon 88E8036 PCI-E Fast E

any driver ideas.

I tried fedura core 3 and no driver for it.

please note, thanks for the help from everyone. It really is a great board and so many have helped me out with past problems and I thank you. If this problem is not solvable that's OK since I've had lots of help on prior stuff far more important than this and I appreciate it!
