Setting Up The Wireless Connection

I am completly new to Linux and I just got my fedora core 4 up and running...YAY!! I was wandering how to even start setting up a network connection. I have a dual boot system and my internet works in XP...I have some networking experiance (i.e. a couple cisco classes) I was just wandering if someone can help me get started.... I have a belkin 802.11g wireless card..
