yum

In a terminal window or command line, you must be super user or have permission to run yum
type yum update this will update you system

also you can type man yum for more information on the yum command

I am installing fedora

Yes you see I am installing fedora 7 soon and I wan to know will it support atheros ar5007eg or another atheros that is older just asking because ubuntu should never be installed on an acer aspire 5100 because you might spend 2 months getting wireless to work.
