Cool Mandrake 10 on a Dell Laptop (Inspiron 5150)

Hey guys, I am pretty much a complete linux n00bee, and need some help with it on my laptop, which is a Dell Inspiron 5150. Everything seems ok except for a few things I need help with...

From the Mandrake control center, hardware part:

The module for wireless network card, Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN mini PCI card is unkown. (Recognized as BCM94306 802.11g NIC)

Regular Wired network module is loaded, but still does not work, this is probably caused by something below

Usb doesn't work either, agian look below

I have 3 unknown/others:

Intel Corporation 852GM System Memory Controller
Intel Corporation 852GM Configuration Process

(not as important as I rarely use it)
Intel Corporation 82801DB AC (COMMUNICATION_MODEM)

Mainly the intel motherboard stuff id like to get working, if anybody has any experience please help out a n00bee.

Yeah I am messing around iwth ndiswrapper now. I actually have switched to SUSE 9.1 to give it a try- so far I really like it. There is a SUSE 9.1 ndiswrapper package but I am still having some trouble getting it to work. I'll sort things out I hope, thanks for the link though its great advice!
