I was wondering if anyone knows how to install the driver if you don't have wireless?

My dad was wondering this; but I'd like to run Fedora on it as it only has .5 GB of RAM, so I thought a Linux based OS would be a lot easier and he wouldn't have to buy more.

Anyway, he said when he first got the wireless USB detector 'thing,' that it came with a CD, now he doesn't have the CD anymore as we never thought it'd come down to this.

If anyone knows, thanks in advance :)

Fedora 13 may well have a native driver for your USB wireless adapter. Install F13 and see if you can connect to your AP. If you can't, post back to this thread.

Okay I told him the other day he should dual boot. I'll try to convince him.
