    It is very difficult to set up a wireless without a wired internet connection available. Is there no way you can temporarily use a wired connection to the internet? Maybe at a friends house.

    Before you do anything, be sure that the correct driver isn't already loading. I have asked you twice for the output of this command, and now I ask a third time.
    Code:
    lsmod
    It is very important, so please post it!

    There is a Windows application for SVN, TortoiseSVN. I have used is before, but it was a long time ago.

    There is another way to download the driver. It is available as a compressed tarball:
    http://orinoco.svn.sourceforge.net/v...ar.gz?view=tar

    This is the complete driver, not just the USB driver. The USB driver is in the /orinoco/branches/usb folder. You should be able to compile it the same. You do need the kernel source installed, which should be available from the installation DVD.

    Thanks.

    I wanted to make sure that there wasn't already a wireless driver loading, as this could conflict with any new driver you compile. I don't see anything, so your good to go.

    You should at least try to download the SVN driver using the Windows app, TortoiseSVN. You may find it interesting, and actually learn something new.

    As for the kernel source, it may be called kernel-devel-(kernel version). To find your kernel version, use this command.
    Code:
    uname -r

    Okay, sounds good. i downloaded that tar from sourceforge and im about to start installing it.

    and i used that command to check my kernel version. it came out as:

    Code:
    2.6.23.1-42.fc8

    Okay, so I guess my issue here is that I need a newer kernel source or w/e. 'Cause it keeps telling me:

    Code:
    Makefile:8: *** Kernel tree not found - please set KERNEL_PATH. Stop.

    You are using the stock installation kernel, so the sources you need will be on the DVD. There are two versions, i586 and i686. To see which you have, use this command.
    Code:
    uname -rm
    Chances are that you need the i686 version, so start up the Add/Remove Software program from the menu and look for this.

    kernel-devel-2.6.23.1-42.fc8.i686

    You may need more programs installed. Gcc is one of them. Any errors you get will usually tell you what is missing. Just keep fixing the errors until it stops complaining.

    Ok so, when i load up the add/remove software thing, it tells me it can't load it up possibly because i have no network connection, and then it gives me the option to close or go to the repository manager. when i click on the manager, i dont see what you posted. So, i guess that's the wrong thing, lol.

    BUT, idk if it matters, but i downloaded an rpm file for a kernel source. it's named "kernel-devel-2.6.23.1-42.fc8.i686.rpm" (btw, i got it from The Linux Kernel Archives) i also downloaded that gcc program as a tgz.gz file. Just a head's up.

    It is best to get the needed files from the DVD. When you open the repository manager, there should be an option for "InstallMedia". Put a check in this box, and remove any checks in other boxes.
