I've Installed Fedora Core 5 with KDE.
Now my problem is that, I've added Two NIC card in my system one is Realtek 8139 and another one is the NETGEar wg311v2 wireless adapter.
The realtek adapter is installed and working ok. bt' i couldn't install the NETGEAR wireless adapter.
Can u please guide me regarding that.

To expand just a little, if there are no native Linux drivers available for the wireless chipset (and you can check for this with Google, too), then it might be possible to use Windows drivers with a package called ndiswrapper.
Wireless adaptors can be a little troublesome from Linux because the interfaces are normally proprietary, and the manufacturers believe these are some kind of trade secret to be hidden from their foes, and so the Open Source community dont even get to make their own drivers when the manufacturers themselves are too narrow minded to make Linux drivers themselves.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
