Hello Vinny,

Fedora uses yum instead of apt-get to install applications. The system
cannot find "apt-get" because the program just isn't there. Furthermore,
ndiswrapper is not included in the official fedora repositories. 

There is a tutorial on setting up ndiswrapper on Fedora:
http://fedoramobile.org/fc-wireless/ndis-yum-livna . This text assumes
you have configured yum to use the livna repository (which does contain
the ndiswrapper packages) as explained in
http://fedoramobile.org/solved/post-install-solutions/yum-config/ . 

I hope this will be enough to get you started.

Good luck,

Jeroen
