Laptop Wireless Card and Desktop Nvidia Graphics Card

So far i'd like so say that Fedora works great except for two drivers not working.

I tried to manually install the nvidia 177 driver but it kept giving me errors about the kernal being out of date or something. Is there any specific instructions on installing the nvidia geforce 177 driver on Fedora 10?

My HP Pavilion dv6500 laptop's wireless isn't working. In ubuntu I used the b43-fwcutter and it worked, but in Fedora it says it's already installed and it's not working, any ideas on how to get that working?

Thank you guys for this wonderful OS (so far).'


Also, when my Desktop boots up, it says Could not load package type 0 or something right before the loading bar, but on my laptop it doesn't do that, any specific reason for this?

The Broadcom wireless in my laptop is not working with Fedora 10. It can connect to an unprotected access point (a throwing-caution-to-the-wind neighbor named "Linksys"), but it cannot connect to my access point, which uses WEP. It asks again and again for the WEP password. Since both the router and NetworkManager can display that password in plain text, I'm sure I'm typing it right.

I have a Broadcom 4303:

Code:
# lspci | grep -i wireless

In /var/log/messages it says:
