Question Latitude D810

I'm just confused. I installed Fedora core 2 (kernal 2.6.5-1) on my Latitude D810.

it doesnt see my Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit ethernet card or my Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI Card.

I know people have been helped with this before, but could anyone give me step by step instructions of what files I need (direct links to them) and what I need to do. I know its a lot to ask, and I'm sorry, but I coud really use the help.

You need to check to see whether the wireless card needs to be using ndiswrapper and the windoze drivers for that card or whether it is supported by open source drivers...

Plus,... I found this...
