i am using motherboard ASUS P4PE,(boardcom network chip)
during installation, when i click extras, i can connect to network by ethernet

but after install, first boot, i cannot activate the device eth0,
which come up with error: No such device
but in the hardware tab, i can see the network card, with status ok.
but when i clcik on it, it say it cannot be initized

p.s. the network card works in winXP

It does work, though, when you are installing and adding repositories?

You can see this for information:

it shows no error during install.
during install, no network is required, right?
so i cannot confirm if it works,
but i checked fedora extra during install, did it matter?

from boardcom, that means, the network card should work?
i quite sure that is relvent because i am using 4401, which shows b44

the website do not provide solutions? already include in kernel?
