    Nidswrapper is a program which allows youto use your windows drivers to get the card running under linux. Firstly, See this post to find out what drivers people used to get the card running under linux. I think ndiswrapper is available on the Fedora installation cd/dvd so if you launch Fedora's add software tool and do a search for it, then it should be there.

    For ndiswrapper to work, you will also need the following packages which can be found on fedora cd/dvd:
    1. kernel sources usually called kernel-source
    2. wireless-tools.

    Once thats done, follow this tutorial to get the card running. (the 2nd half of the tutorial is what you are looking for, the 1st part deals with installing ndiswrapper from scratch.

    Hope this helps.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
