    Well, this is the problem when installing rpms singularly. You usually run into dependency problems. These are packages that need to be installed before you can install b43-fwcutter.

    I did a search for packages that provide the libc.so.6 file, and this is what I got.

    [root@localhost paul]# yum whatprovides libc.so.6
    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
    glibc-2.9-2.i386 : The GNU libc libraries
    Repo : fedora
    Matched from:
    Other : libc.so.6

    glibc-2.9-2.i686 : The GNU libc libraries
    Repo : fedora
    Matched from:
    Other : libc.so.6

    glibc-2.9-3.i686 : The GNU libc libraries
    Repo : updates
    Matched from:
    Other : libc.so.6

    glibc-2.9-3.i386 : The GNU libc libraries
    Repo : updates
    Matched from:
    Other : libc.so.6

    glibc-2.9-3.i686 : The GNU libc libraries
    Repo : installed
    Matched from:
    Other : Provides-match: libc.so.6

    You should install the second one, glibc-2.9-2.i686. It should be installable from the installation disk. Otherwise you will have to download it from the Fedora repository too. The repository may have a newer version, that is OK to use. I also used a different yum command for reference.
    Code:
    [root@localhost paul]# yum resolvedep libc.so.6
    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
    0:glibc-2.9-3.i686
    So it says use glibc-2,9-3, a newer version.

    Now, glibc may also have dependencies, so the loop will continue. If there is any way that you can hook up to a wired internet connection, you really should consider it. If you have to carry your PC several miles to a place where you can hook it up, it will be easier than experiencing dependency hell.

    glibc can be found in the same repository that b43-fwcutter is in:
    ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub...6/os/Packages/

    Thumbs up

    Well, I've found a wired connection, and tried the link sooner_born_1960 gave me, and I can now connect to other networks. Thanks!

    Now I just need to fix add/delete programs and install flashplayer...so much to do with a new OS
