New to linux; trying to get internet
I just set up a the mandriva 2007 sping release on my system. Everything seems smooth except the ethernet and sound driver. I have a p5k Asus motherboard wich has onboard gigabit lan and onboard sound. They provide a driver for linux which it sais has been tested on suse and redhat. It sais it needs to be compiled against the kernel.
As a someone completely new to linux, I am tying to figure out how to do that. Without any programming knowledge is it even possible for me to get this working? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
