Hi, folks, thank you for those recommendations
I have noticed something thus, I want to share it with others
I have bought inspiron laptop 700m, recently.
First, I used fdisk to remove all partition on my harddisk
I added new RAM to my laptop
At that time, the laptop doesn't have any OS installed.
Then I did clean installation of fedora core 2 ( actually I tried fedora core 3 too )
It installed just fine, but I can't log-in, the computer just stop at "Bringing up interface eth0"
After almost 15 hours of installing and uninstalling, switching back and forth fedora core 2, fedora core 3, window XP, finally I removed my added RAM.
After removing the RAM, I can install and use either Fedora Core 2 and Fedora Core 3.
eth0 works also on those distribution.
I finally settle with Fedora Core 2 as my installation ( kernel 2.6.5 )
I noticed that my touchpad of my mouse doesn't work and my wireless card doesn't work.
Then I finally upgrade to kernel 2.6.10.fc2 using yum install kernel
After verifying both the eth0 and touchpad work, and used the laptop for couple days.
I came back to install my new RAM.
If I use my new fc2 kernel 2.6.10, the log-in process doesn't stall, and memory is detected correctly, eth0 also work.
If I use my old fc2 kernel 2.6.5, the log-in process again stall at 'bringing up interace eth0'
that is my latest status, thus I suspect the problem is with the kernel.
I am newbie by the way,
After updating, the touchpad on the mouse work.
