Installing a wireless card in my HP Pavilion laptop ze5300

I got a Linksys router 2.4Ghz and a Wireless G SpeedBooster card to install in my laptop, and when I try to run "./Configure" occur an error that tell me the Kernel Head files are present but not all sources files, then stops the installation. I got the Fedora Core 2 and I choosed install like a desktop and customized installing "Everything" (all available packages). I tried once with the card plugged, and another time with no wireless card, none worked. I have Win XP Pro installed too and the wireless card works fine, but I want to stay with linux.

So, I have to put the source files on the /usr/src/linux, but I have no idea where the sources files is, how can I put them on the path or something like that.

The link I got to install this wireless card is below: X2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9NCZwX3NlYXJjaF90eXBlPXNlYXJjaF9ubCZwX3Byb2RfbHZsMT0mcF9wcm9kX2x2bDI9JnBf Y2F0X2x2bDE9JnBfY2F0X2x2bDI9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9bGludXg*&p_li=

and if someone can help me with this, thanks anyway.

The link you posted provides instructions for installing drivers for a Prism-based WPC11 card. You seem to have a WPC54G - a Broadcom card. You'll need ndiswrapper or Linuxant to get that card running under Linux. Try the Wireless Networking Forum. Many have traveled this path before you.
