My card is a linksys WMP54GS, which has a broadcomm chipset on it. What I needed to do was install bcm43xx-fwcutter and use it to get the proper missing files from wl_apsa.o. Apparently, kernels beyond that FC4 one need those files but don't provide them.
Now, I'm up to 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5!
My new problem is a common one... why am I getting this error when attempting to install kmod-nvidia?
Error: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia conflicts with selinux-policy < 2.2.29-2.fc5
Firstly, because you have SELinux set to "enforcing"
Secondly, because the policy prohibits additions of "closed-source" code to the kernel since you have no way to verify that the code does not contain some "trojan."
If you don't care, try using the SELinux policy tools to set the security to report violations, but not prohibit them. (Um, that assumes your system does not need to be "super" secure.)
