I just got Fedora installed and it's my first RedHat based distro.

My wireless network card doesn't work natively on linux so I need NDISWrapper to get it working, but I don't know where to get the NDISWrapper RPMs.

I have previously used this document to install it, but as you can see it only points to .deb files.

I could of course use alien, but it's not installed by default either, and I don't know where to find it either. Compiling also failed.

If anyone knows where I can find the files, could you also say how to use them, I'm not used to yum or whatever app is used to install other apps.
