FC5 is pretty slow. try to install FC6. it should work. or install suse 10.2.

what is the error msg while configuring X?  regarding ur nic card, i think the 
driver for that is bg103 or some version . check that out from the list of 
drivers while configuring it. in the list of drivers is shows the driver name 
& in bracket ( ) shows the company which it supports.
