I'm new to Linux, though am keen to begin learning to admin my system.
I've installed FC6 on a laptop and now want to use my wireless card (Phillips SNN6500). I believe the drivers aren't installed from the installation DVD used, but with the tutorial found via this forum (http://www.manix-place.co.uk/wireless.html
) I seem to have got them now.
My problem is - I can't physically plug into the internet via a wire so I can't proceed by using yum.
Why can't I use yum without referring to an external repository? How do I change the repository otherwise?
I don't know where to begin looking for a solution. Please help!
