Because I'm just that kind of person, I am now running Fedora Core 2
Test as my primary OS. Everything seems to be working fairly well,
barring the occasional crashes, except for ndiswrapper. Fedora 2 has
the 2.6.1-1.65 kernel, which produces the following output when trying
to run install.sh or /driver/make install.
[root@... ndiswrapper]# sh install.sh
Give the full path to .inf file of windows driver? /share/bcmwl5.inf
Give the full path to .sys file of the windows driver? (/share/bcmwl5.
Executing make install to build the module and loadndisdriver.

I'm going to install the 2.4 kernel from Fedora 1 and use that when I
need wireless. I'm also going to take a look at desc.h and see if I can
do something productive. Thought I would give some heads up on this
issue to anyone planning on upgrading.
