1) Unable to add ethernet device in network configuration (ethernet is not an extension card, it's build into my motherboard)

The linux found it? you configured it? (change the details)


ifconfig eth0 10.200.1.1 netmask 255.0.0.0





2) No sound support (Also, no extension card)
Try running as root (#) this command:
sndconfig




3) Games like TuxRacer go like a slug
Go to the url, that you received, download, install, load the modules and all will be fine.
