Pci-e, what a bummer, it looks like ndiswrapper is the way to go.
Which I personally have not had much luck with.
But, Sabayon and Mepis are able to configure that card correctly, but both are what I would consider to be bloated distros.

Can you tell me why PCI- e doesn't work, or whatever, it's not that I don't agree, but I just haven't heard of this. Does it apply too all PCI -e Devices or just "bcm43xx"? It would explain why I have failed numerous times to help people getting their Wireless configured.

Well, I figured out.
It doesnt work.. I need to install Gentoo so Badly.
So, well I need to install Gentoo without inet.
And then afterwards I install everything and Wireless.
But well a Basic Linux System (Gentoo) first and then a Wifi Connection. But Its not important now. Just a Gentoo install without Inet.
The LiveCD stops. And the Knoppix-Install doesnt work.
I hope that somebody can help me..

What happens with the knoppix-install?
On a side note, when I tried to install Gentoo to my AMD64 laptop using the 64-bit stage 3 tarball, it failed twice at copying files.
The same file I mentioned earlier.
I was reading on the Gentoo forums about the 2007.0 installer and a bunch of people were saying that it was buggy.
