I think you should download kernel-devel package.
The command is "yum install kernel-devel".

The only way I can access internet is by wireless. Now my wireless is not ready on fc5. so can i use
yum ? I think the work to configure yum is hard for me.

Yes yum won't work. So do uname -r and look for your kernel version. Then look for kernel-devel-{version}.rpm on internet. Copy it to your notebook and install. Then you will make and make install your drivers...
