Broadcom bcm94321MP - Maybe? How to make it work?



Hello all,

I recently got an HP dv9000 CTO laptop and finally managed to get FC5 x86_64 installed. The wired NIC is working, the wireless isn't, the sound isn't and the webcam isn't either. I haven't tried the FireWire stuff yet, so not sure if that works, but that's no priority (neither are sound and webcam, the wireless stuff is though).

Some digging around on the web took me to bcm43xx-fwcutter and I followed the instructions, but the card doesn't show up in the device list to select (there is only 'Other'). Of course, there is a driver for the Windows side, but with an 80 GB drive, there is no space for Windows. If I need to install windows elsewhere and install the broadcom driver to extract the firmware, I can do that - question is: will the extraction part work for anything else than the wl_apsta.o file?

I'm dropping the output of lspci in here, it hasn't helped me a bit:
