The best advice for you is to just throw out whatever screwy wireless

modern Linux kernel for at least a year now, buy it, plug it in, and have
everything Just Work™.

There are plenty of wireless cards out there with native Linux support.

Most cards that are *supported* by Linux can't be plugged into a Fedora box and "just work". You might not have to compile some of the drivers, but you probably still have to hunt and find firmware.

Hmmm, so what's all this stuff in /lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1376_FC3smp/kernel/drivers/net/wireless?
