    Well...there is no device manager, so it really depends on what you are trying to configure. If it is the graphics card, try 'Xconfigurator' or 'XF86config' from the comand line if it is a network card issue try editing the file 'ifcfg-eth0' under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and then make sure you run '/etc/rc.d/init.d/network stop' and then '/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start'

    if it is something else, let me know and I will tell you where it is

    for your sound card...try 'sndconfig'

    the procedure I stated above for the video card will also take care of the monitor.

    AS far as the modem goes try this to get you started:
