Switching Distros - Dell Inspiron 1545
Hello! Let me start off by saying that I am a strongly intermediate linux user - I've been through multiple distributions, know how to do basic programming, and am not afraid of the command line.
Now, for various reasons, the straw breaking the camel's back being the absolute hideousness of much of Karmic Koala, I have decided to once again move away from Ubuntu. I tried to do this once before, moving to Fedora 11, but it does not come with the required Broadcom wireless driver installed, and I have no access to a wired connection so I cannot use an rpm or yum it. I also downloaded it from the official site (sorry I'm not allowed to post URLs...), but the installation/compiling did not work for me (I do not remember the exact error as it was months ago).
So, my question is, is there any solution to my problem that I am overlooking, or are there any distributions that come with the driver preinstalled?
