Short version: Dell 700m...Xandros free desktop edition...can't connect to the internet...dl broadcom driver of the net, still a no go but it was recognized...does not recognize Dell interne/networking noob who did search...any help would be much appreciated.

Long version: Hello all. This is my first foray into the world of Linux. I am a total noob and did a search but could not find anything. I just dl Xandros free desktop and everything went fine, but I can't connect to the internet. During the network part of the install I was notified that both the broadcom and something I can't remember were not supported. I searched on the net and found a broadcom driver that I installed but it did not work or I did not install it right. Xandros did recognize it though.
