Linux N00b needing help installing wireless with Fedora Core 2

Hey all....

I just downloaded Fedora Core 2 yesterday and installed it so this is basically my 2nd day using Linux. Currently I'm using WinXP but only because when I boot up into Fedora I dont know how to install wireless cards. I have some drivers on my desktop in linux but since I'm a complete n00b I have no idea on how to install stuff. I have a DWL 520 Wireless-G PCI card in my PC and its working fine in windows I just need to know how to set up wireless cards in Fedora. Thanks for your help in advance,
