Unhappy how do I setup my linksys wireless PCMCIA card to work in Fedora Core 4?

I have loaded Fedora Core 4 on my IBM A30 laptop. Am trying to get my linksys WPC54GS wireless cardbus to talk to my network. I don't see any info when I run iwconfig. My wired nic works fine which is what I am using to ask this question. I am brand new at this and can use any hlp I can get. The system loaded ok, I just dont know where to go from here.

First off. Welcome to LQ.

You are going to need to use ndiswrapper to get your card working.

Here is the closest thing I have to help.RedHat site

Search google for ndiswrapper and your wireless card/distro.

I'll keep looking if I see anything else I will post back here.

Wish I could be more help.
Hopefully this will at least point you in the right direction.

Good Luck
