Will do.

I renamed the old driver r8169 to offr8169,
rebooted and was able to install the r8101 driver. 
(There was typo in the original post indicating it
was the r8108  driver.)

I'll re-generate the error messages and post the
results on Friday. (I deleted the old  /var/log/messages
file since there was to much noise in it so I need to
reboot to regenerate the errors but my machine is
currently updating Fedora.)

The LAN, wireless and sound are working so I'm
happy camper.
