I am looking for help on how to create a wireless access point using fedora core 12.
I have done some searching and have not found anything.
Please help, thanks.

I've never done it bu t it can be done. Look at the "man iwconfig" man page for the "mode" parameter.
The code normally sets mode to "Managed" (meaning be a client to other WAP), but if you set it to "Master" then your system becomes the WAP. You still need to setup the dhcp and forward DNS services. Look at dnsmasq for that. Then there is the issue of the Web security WPAQ2 or whatever.
Try google.com/linux and search. This is not a Fedora specific issue.
