As far as I'm aware Lindows is Linux but made to look and work like Windows
XP........Brrrr what a horrilbe thought. Have you had a look in the
motherboard manuel for any indication as to what the nic on your
motherboard is? Maybe there is a driver disk that came with it and even if
it doesn't have a linux driver on it it will give you an idication as to
what driver/module you need to install or enable to get it working.
Also try opening a terminal and typing lsmod to what is loaded and once
you've found out what module you need type modprobe xxxxxxx (where xxxxx
is the name of the module). If you get no error message you will need to
either add or uncomment the module from your /etc/modules.conf file or
wherever lindows stores this info.
