Fedora Core 5 and ASUS M2N32 deluxe Wi-Fi and Audio drivers

I just recently installed Fedora Core 5 as a dual boot with XP x64. It works wonderfully accept for the fact that the motherboard built-ins, namely audio and wi-fi, aren't functional. Is there a recommendation on whether I should use NDSWrapper or MadWiFi to install those drivers? Also, if anyone knows if ASUS has linux drivers, I searched the product downloads and couldnt find any.

As for the audio, its been recommended to me to find a generic soundblaster 16 driver and try to use that, however I'm skeptical as to whether it may be my USB headset thats the problem, rather than the audio. However, that would be strange because my other USB devices are functioning fine, and (as least in windows) there was no drivers needed to operate the headset.

Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Well as far as the WiFi..
ndiswrapper could work maybe, but it isnt the most straight forward thing to do (nor is it the most difficult, since they have an excellent wiki)
MadWifi will not work though, since it is for atheros chipset based cards. A little googling found that the WiFi AP Solo on the Asus M2N32 is based on the Realtek ...
some help might be found here :

Hope this helps
