Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-17 22:51:06 EDT
We only maintain drivers in the upstream kernel. If you'd like to see
them in Fedora Core, getting them included there first would be the
steps to take.
Comment 2 Florian Effenberger 2004-10-18 11:56:49 EDT
Okay, then please include the "madwifi" package that provides the 
drivers. :-)
