Dell Wireless 1510 wlan min-card (Dell Latitude 2100) CentOS 6.2

I am trying to get my wireless to work on a Dell Latitude 2100 (netbook) with the Dell Wireless 1510 wireless-N wlan mini-card.

Do I need to download additional packages to get it to recognize the wireless card. I believe it is a Broadcom.

I am running CentOS 6.2 x86 (32-bit) with all patches updates/applied.

Any help/advice would be great.

0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
