    hey, i have just set up my new dell inspiron 600m laptop to dual boot windows xp pro & redhat 7.5, and everything is working great except for the wireless adapter. redhat wont recognize it, and dell doesnt make a driver for it. i dont know a lot about linux, so i dont really know if its possible or what...is there any way i can get it to work?
    thanks in advance


    its a dell inspiron 600m laptop, the name of the wireless card is
    Intel(R) Pro/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter

    and im trying to install it on redhat linux 7.3

    there are three 600m's which have successfully had RH installed on them. I should note though that RH is withdrawing their WorkStation version and will be doing exclusively RH for Servers. To replace the RH WorkStation they have a spin-off distro called Fedora
