Network manager in FC5 (bcm43xx-fwcutter)


Hello

I'm new to Fedora Core I've just installed the latest FC5, and updated the kernel to 2.6.16-1.2126_FC5.

Also, I've dl the bcm43xx-fwcutter-004, and I've installed that.

I used bcm43xx-fwcutter to install a bcml5.sys driver for my wireless card.

Now I'm trying to figure out how to get my connection kickin.

I was told network manager, but I don't seem able to accomplish anything.

Has anyone had succes with the bcm43xx-fwcutter?
&
Is there a specific way to setup a wireless connection?

Thanks.
