Broadcom Wireless Card Trouble

Hello, I am new to Linux and would greatly appreciate help on how to get my Internal Wireless card for my laptop working. I Dual-Booted my fedora 10 OS with my Windows XP so i can get used to Linux before I completely dedicate myself to the switch. But I can't seem to to get my wireless card working.

i am only using fedora 9 and can't get broadcom to work but have you tried using b43-fwcutter in terminal. when i try using it i get "cannot open input file wl_apsta.o"

i have found references online but all for much older versions of fedora. if anyone knows a fix for this thats already out there could they let me know

We need a bit more information before we can offer some help - what model is your wireless card? If you're not sure, you can find out by running in a terminal (Applications > System Tools > Terminal):
/sbin/lspci  -nn
You should see 'Network controller' listed in there with the model number if your Broadcom card. Post the entire line back here please.
