Installing Wireless card... step by step


I want to install a Netgear WG511T in Fedota Core 6. I just download the MadWiFi driver for this card, but, How can I get this installed? Can anybody tells me how to do it step by step?

I got the next msg.
[root@localhost madwifi-0.9.2]# make install
/bin/sh: line 0: cd: /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build: No existe el fichero o el directorio *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build is missing, please set KERNELPATH. Alto.
[root@localhost madwifi-0.9.2]#

Follow instruction, which comes with your package.

Set KERNELPATH as appropriate, (it depends on your system)

Happy Penguins!
