Post Linux Drivers for Broadcom Wireless Chipset!!

i was looking around and found this great windfall for all of us laptop owners that have a Broadcom Chipset. Just as i finally got my card working with WPA the other day i hope this would be a great thing instead of using the ndiswrapper

Installation help

I am a Linux newbie. I got the file from the FTP site, but the page you link to is all in Greek to me. Can you or anyone provide step-by-step instructions on loading this driver?

So.... is the 43xx the same as the 54g that is in most laptops? (including mine)

Would this give me anymore than what ndiswrapper gives me? (like an accurate signal strength reading)

It's already available as part of Rawhide's kernel. (This is the testing/development branch of Fedora; and probably should not be used for production systems as it generally is in a continuous "beta" stage and may break at any time. That said, many developers do use it as their primary distribution...)

Congrats and thanks to the bcm43xx team!
