Interesting.  On my laptop (Gateway - made by Quanta) I had trouble with
Fedora recognizing my Network card (Broadcom Gigabit).

I tried OpenSUSE (Net install) and it didn't recognize my Network card
or Cdrom/hdd (after booting from the CD!) -- the same thing happened
after downloading the 5 CDs and trying a local install.

When I tried Ubuntu (after turning off the framebuffer on the install)
the install went well and everything seems to work well (haven't tried
the wireless (Intel 2915abg) yet).
