But you must have gotten some driver disk with it? Open up the box and
take a peek. Open up the case and have a look at the card for markings.
Install Windows and let it figure out what you have - then install whatever
linux you want and go search for a driver for it. You know, you can't
install a driver for a card if you don't know what driver you are supposed
to install. Surely there was a spec for the machine. If all else fails
I'd ring up the shop/builder or whoever you got it from and find out the
card type from them. I really would install Windows in the interim and
look up the card data from there. Thats a good way to start finding out
about the hardware in your machine. Still though, if its not Plug n Play
and you don't have a driver disk you're screwed either way and will need to
get back to the manufacturer. Try these things and see what happens.
