Intel wireless internet driver issues.
 
Hello, I have a lenovo 3000 N100 and it has a intel pro wireless 3925ABG network adapter. I am trying to install it and im having problems doing so. I have to install the 802.11 lib and whatever, I can do that. But in order to do so I need the kernel-source. I am having an issue trying to get that. Anyway, If someone can run me through the process of how to install this whole thing that would be cool. Thank you.

We need to know your distro, and output of lspci -vv for the wireless card.

... does the card come with the laptop or do you have to install it?

That is good because you are totally unclear here.

... what issue? The source is under GPL, they must give it to you!

Sorry for being a bit vague on the details, I didn't think of that till now. I am running Fedora Core 7. For the kernel thing, im lost because I used to be able to put in yum -y install kernel-source and it would install it. But that wont work anymore. So I am just wondering how to get it cause I need it to install the driver. And I also dont know how to get it from my GPL I am not the most advanced user to linux. The card is also built into the laptop. EDIT: I am not sure what Ispci -vv is.
