    Ok, I think Fedora Core 4 ships with ndiswrapper, goto the Package management section of Fedora, and search for ndiswrapper, it should be on the cd/dvd you used to install Fedora. You will also need the wireless tools and kernel sources to be installed

    Or you could also download an rpm for ndiswrapper from http://rpm.pbone.net and install it with this command:
    Code:
    rpm -iv ndiswrapper_version_number.rpm
    replace _version_number with the correct file name.
