Broadcom 1400 Wireless G NIC in Dell 8500

Hey all... yup, another Linux newbie. I will try to keep the recycled questions down, though I am having troubles finding an answer to this one.

Scenerio - Installing Fedora Core 1 on my Dell 8500. Great package, easy to use thus far, lovin it! I haven't much linux or unix background, but am vary familiar with MS OS's.

So far I have a few bugs I am working on, found answers to most on other great write-ups about the 8500. But I can't find anything on my the Broadcom wireless NIC I have.

Anyone have any suggestions?

This is the 1400 wireless G card from Broadcom. The wired interface is working fine (posting from the linux box

Anyway, great site and love the help!
