oh yes, I wrote the stuff back to DVD and reimaged my machine, anyways i wanted to. I have
liked using fedora but no-internet is stopping me from doing that.
Wondering why I am not able to enable NIC to work on different flavor as well!!

Fedora, by nature, is more leading edge, less stable than the regular

upgrading it can do that. Hope you backed up your stuff before. Maybe
"un-yumming" can bring the functionality back?
On my dell inspiron 1505, NIC had worked fine, it stopped working all
of a sudden, couldnt really predict any reason.
What was I doing? --- Was trying for maximum plugins thru yum, guess
yum"ing" did this, can this ?
I thought it was a Fedora issue but I tried Opensuse 10.2 running Xen
on the same machine and it had the same problem. Next to it, I had a
Dell Dimension 4400 desktop running FC 6 with Xen, accessing the
Internet just fine.

Do you also have Dell Inspiron? Do I understand it correctly that the
network didn't work for you even with non-xen kernels?

Have you tried to use non-xen kernel? The b44 module is known
functional with xen kernels (it won't work if you use
2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen and previous kernels)
For reference please have a look at:
One user complains that the b44 module still doesn't work for
Dell Inspiron 6000 with the new kernel containing the fix:
even though it works almost for all other notebooks with
Broadcom (HP in
my case) so it seems like the whole Dell Inspiron series is
