linksys wireless card not working in Fedora 8


I was running Fedora 7 and was using a linksys wireless card (wmp54gs version 1) and it worked great then i moved to Fedora 8 and it is no longer recognized also its a pci card and xp recognizes and uses it even as we speak o and im running 64 bit version of Fedora don't know if that matters

You don't use YUM to install source tarballs. To install ndiswrapper, try
Code:
#yum install ndiswrapper
