Unhappy Is it even possible to install Wireless USB Adapter (Netgear WG11T) on Fedora Core 6

I have a laptop. First partition has Win 2k. 2nd has Fedora Core 6. Is it even possible to install a Wireless USB Adapter on Fedora Core 6?? I see posts everywhere for NDIS Wrapper, but it only seems to support if you have a Wireless adapter plugged into your PCMCIA Slot. I have a USB Adapter from Netgear (WG111T). If I can use NDIS Wrapper, are there simple step by step instructions in an article somewhere to do so? Perhaps someone has created a GUI app to simplify the process?

that's more of a kernel issue than a distribution issue. try to find out if yours, or any kernel supports that device.

lsusb will output the device code. Search ndiswrapper site for that particular device code and follow instructions. Sometimes you need to download a 16k stack kernel to get the device working.
