I realize i'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but I want to believe
that I'm not as dumb as a sack of nickles.
In the absence of substance, allow me to cut right to the jargon

Installed FC4 with Kernel I have a Linksys WPC54Gv2 which works
great with ndiswrapper. (Yay for > 4K Stacks) I want to use Kismet but it
doesn't support ndiswrapper - great.'

After searching high and low I ran across some [archive] forum
where a gentleman was able to get his WPC54G WiFi card to work.

09:00.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX 111 54Mbps Wireless
#lspci -n
09:00.0 Class 0280: 104c:9066

Attempting to follow his steps and the links provided, I did a little due
diligence, and thought I found a potential solution but later got
confused. I've been bouncing between the following four sites for guidance
on getting my card to work:

I read most of the documentation on the very last page mentioned above but
stopped after getting down to the 'USAGE HINTS' area as I got a little
confused when it came to the 'FIRMWARE INSTALLTION' section. Here I'll
detail what I did, and hopefully someone can nudge me in the correct

copied my FwRad17.bin to firmware/ as TIACX111.BIN
ran 'make inject KSRC=/path/to/kernel/src' which appeared to run ok
["Process successfully completed. Enjoy it!"]

After that I could not figure out where to go.

FYI the binary files that came with the drivers:

I'm also concerned that I did not put the correct .bin files in the
correct location(s[?]).

I am no looking to be spoonfed - I would just like a little advice (maybe
more documentation) and a thumbs up/thumbs down as to what I did and a
nudge in the correct direction.
