just got myself this new Acer Travelmate 4652LMi. Install 7.3 red hat onto the 2nd boot HD. (I know 7.3 is old and crappy but my company SW required it to run).
The installation runs smoothly. But when i get into the program and configuring the network card. I cannot find anything that match. It's a Broadcom Netlink ™ Gigabit card. Where can i start finding a solution to this? I need the network card,so that i can get the hostid of the system. Is there a way around this. My company will only issue a SW key when the laptop produce a linux_hostid.

Please help. thanks
