Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Consider an upgrade, Fedora 10 is about 18months old, we're on 12 now, with 13 on it's way. You may find these problems have long since been fixed; I am using the same hardware successfully to post this now
For your wireless card, there are two drivers, the opensource b43 (which requires non-free firmware) or the proprietary Broadcom wl driver. The b43 only began supporting this card recently, as of kernel 2.6.32, so you'll probably need the wl driver.
Thank you reed9
I followed the link u gave and installed akmod-wl package and got wireless working. And i was able to access websites but then today when i tried to access my wireless it says connected and have 100% connection but then could not access any webpages.Dunno what actually is the problem. Can you suggest anything to configure wireless in fedora.
