How would this be supported ?  

The hardware is a HP-compac 6715b, with network chipset from Broadcom.
In some previous release of Fedora, I tried to get it working with
Bcm43xx, but had to compile my own driver. Something I failed doing,
some libraries or headers was not in the release.Frequent updates of 
packages drowned me.

I was unaware that Broadcom had any driver for Linux. I was certain I 
was running some precompiled b43-module. To patch/compile - make your 
own version, is too demanding. And your left on some different page
then the rest. 

So, with the other chipset, would you get wireless "out-of-the-box"
with Fedora ?
