And, as I said in my last post, the driver is already installed. All you need to do is run the b43-fwcutter program with the correct sys, inf or .o file and you should have the wireless running. (I'm vague about the file that contains the microcode because I haven't had a Broadcon mini-pci card in use for a couple of years.)

As I suggested above, just search in the forum for fwcutter, or see what the Fedora developers say in the installation notes or the Fedora WiKi.
