upgrade kernal or install broadcom 4401 module

i just installed rh9 a about a week ago and have just got the dual boot with windows working with the help of this site and linux_junky. now i need some help with the next project. I was wondering what would be easier to do, just install a new kernel, like 2.6.2, or install the module for my broadcom 4401 nic card? I have an inspiron 8500 that needs quite a bit of tweaking, some of which the 2.6.2 kernel would fix, like the nic driver problem, but I'm not really sure if i could do it successfully yet. Ive looked around for info but haven't really found anything that explained exactly what i need to do. help with either one would be greatly appreciated, I really want to stop surfing with window. thanks.
