FC10 and NDISwrapper



Hi folks.

I'm trying to get WIFI working on my new DELL and I've been told to try 
ndiswrappers.

I tried 

yum search ndiswrapper

and varients, but nothing was found. I then found RPMs using rpmsearch and 
downloaded them.

Now when I try 'yum localinstall' it adds the kernel as a dependancy, 
downloads it, and then errors saying it is already installed.

If I try 'rpm -i'  it fails on dependancy for /boot/vmlinuz

I've included the session log. Has anyone any suggestions?

Gary
