Newbie needs help with Broadcom 4318

Hoping someone can help me out as I am totally new to linux.

Currenty I am running FC6 on my Compaq V2311US machine and want to set up the wireless function. However I have been reading that this could be a problem area.

My question is how do I go about setting it up? I need simple step by step instructions as I have never really touched Linux before so I am kinda slow at this.

Thanks in advance.

This is a much asked question. Look through the networking and wireless forums. But, most importantly, click the search button and enter "broadcom 43".

Definitely search for how it is to be done but you have to blacklist the bcm43xx module and use ndiswrapper. Plenty of resources.
