Well, i got my Fedora Core 8 DVD in the mail today, so i popped it into my computer (that... used to run Windows XP) and proceeded through the setup. Well, I didnt know what i was doing i guess and it deleted everything on my harddrive.
Thats the first problem, but not my main one.

The other (and main problem for this thread) is that i have a Belkin Wireless G +MIMO adaptor on that computer, but i dont know if its compatible with FC8 or not. Are there drivers i could get somewhere to help me connect to the net through it, or do i need a whole new Wireless adaptor?

Thanks tons for the help in advance!

I logged in as su -. ... Yeah dunno what else. But im also running into problems where the drivers for my card are just executables, and dont have the sys, etc. files. So im just going to skip this, and i ordered a CAT5e cable... Will it work if i just wire my computer to the modem i have that way? i think i heard something about certain modems not being compatible with FC. So i dunno. Ill google for more info.

Thanks for the help!
