Broadcom BCM94306MP Driver

Hello all,

I'm new to Linux and overly socialized by microsoft windows technology so hopefully I won't be too burdensome with my request.

I'm having some trouble with my compaq nx9010 laptop which contains a broadcom 94306MP WiFi card. I've read a zillion forums and have downloaded the NDISwrapper file. I took the file from my windows computer after unzipping it and moved it over to my Redhat computer using a floppy. Now, the problem is, I don't understand how to install it or make it work. I'm used to a click and run system, IE, Windows. I found the terminal where you can enter in text but after that, I'm completely lost. I'm sure that the main part of my problem is that I'm unfamiliar with linux and how it functions but once I can see how the commands work and do their jobs, I'll have a better understanding.

If anyone can take a couple minutes to walk me through precisely what I need to do to get this baby working, I would certainly appreciate it. Billy
