I've just converted to linux and have double booted FC6 with windows XP.
I apologise if this topic has been covered before but I have been asking around all sorts of forums and I can't understand any of the replies I'm getting.
My problem is that I'm trying to get a Wireless D-Link DWL-G510 working on linux but I don't have a clue how to do so. Apparently I need to install a different sort of driver but I don't know what and I don't know how to install drivers even when I do get a hold of the one that I need.
If it's not too much hassle could somebody please give me a very simple to understand step by step explanation of what needs to be done. I've tried researching it and don't understand all the linux talk I get as responses yet.

Nah, it's not really a different driver...what you want to look for is a program called Ndiswrapper. What that program does is it allows you to use your windows (*.inf) driver file to run the card in linux.
I am the machine that reveals the truth to you as only I can see it.
Memories are nice, but that\'s all they are....memories.
You can\'t ever find a place that\'s nice and peaceful, because there isn\'t any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you\'re not looking, somebody\'ll sneak up and write \'Fuck you\' right under your nose.
