If you can get to the internet to download the files to a cd then you could update the fedora on your computer.
If this is possible try doing this:
(by the way I am not an expert...but I've used this method myself from time to time and it seems to work)
First go here:
and choose which directory you need:
Parent Directory -
[DIR] SRPMS/ 20-Sep-2006 19:43 -
[DIR] i386/ 20-Sep-2006 19:44 -
[DIR] ppc/ 20-Sep-2006 19:43 -
I use a amd 64 cpu so I'd choose the x86_64, if you use a 32 bit cpu choose the i386 directory
Click the directory of your choice and then go down until you find files that look somewhat like these...if 32 bit there won't be a _64 bit ending, of course...

Choose the file that matches your kernel:
then download it to the computer you are on...and I don't know if you need the ...dump...file but download it as well...the one that matches the kmod-ndiswrapper kernel you've downloaded....just to be safe...
Then burn a cd of these files...and take them over to the computer with fedora on it and copy them to your home folder...right click on the files and click on properties and make sure the files are executable (sp?)...
Then open your terminal...you should have the files in your home folder...the terminal should have you in your home folder:
you are want to go root...
when asked type in the root password
not yelling below but it is very important:
DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER RPMS INSTALLED IN YOUR HOMEFOLDER MAIN DIRECTORY AT THIS TIME...JUST THE ONES YOU WANT TO INSTALL...
then type the following using this command: :
rpm -ivh *.rpm
That should install the rpms...the only thing I am not sure about...if fedora knows where to put them...I've installed many programs using this method...and they always seem to go where they need to...
Hope this helps...remember we were all once newbeez...and if you are willing to get just a little bit dirty...meaning learning something new...you will find linux a wonderful os...
