To work around, or work through.
I've toyed around with Linux in the past, but have never seriously used it as a home computing OS. I've now decided to try and break away from Window 100% (with Vista coming and all). My problem is that my motherboard's (Abit ULI M1689 KU8 ) onboard ethernet adapter (IC Plus IP100 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapter) doesn't seem to be working with my Fedora Core 4. I've searched around for some Linux drivers for it, but alas, none can be found.
So, to the question.
A: Attempt to resolve the problem by simply buying a seperate ethernet card, and forgeting about the lack of compatibility,
B: Work through the problem, because there might be a problem later on down the road due to compatibility issues between Linux and my motherboard?
If the answer is A, could you direct me to a compatible ethernet card? And if B, could you point me in the right direction to start resolving the compitibility issue?
