Even as recently as the 2.6.14 kernel it appears to have limited 
support, and this user claims that only using the 2.6.15 did he get 
networking support.


For a board this new Fedora Core is one of the few options that will 
likely work with it.  And I'm generally very unhappy with having to 
upgrade Fedora Core so often.
