Help with FC5 Install

I was having some problems with my FD5 install so I did a complete reinstall this time with taking care to make sure I installed the right packages and configured this during the install. Now after a complete reinstall I am getting the exact same problems.

First I cannot get it to recognize my wireless. Even though looking in the libraries I can see my aero card in the modules when I do a modprobe it gives me a error module not found. When i go to add and remove packages it still gives me a error and then crashes. I go to install ndiswrapper extract it to /tmp then do a make and I get the same error. Nothing seems to work with it. What am I missing? i took care to install the packages but now I cannot even do a make after I downloaded the ndiswrapper and transfered it to that PC. I dont understand why it doesnt see the aero even though i am looking at it or I cannot use my package manager. Anyone have any ideas?

I guess you could wait for a newer version of FC to come out or try an older, maybe even another distro?

wish i could help more.
