Broadcom wireless



I'm working with the 4 January rawhide live dvd and a Dell i1545
laptop with Broadcom wireless.

There is a directory /lib/firmware/b43 that has some Broadcom
stuff in it, but not the ones I need.

The b43 developers say that Fedora does not have the right to
distributed the Broadcom stuff, that the end user has to go through
a ritual spelled out in their wiki to get it.

If that's true, then the files should be removed from the distribution.
If that's not true then there are a lot of files that need to be added
