Does Fedora 7 support my wireless device?

At first sight, the answer is "no". dmesg shows "bcm43xx_mac80211:
Error: Microcode "bcm43xx_microcode5.fw" not available or load

But before I go wandering off to install ndiswrapper, as I have done
for the last year, I was wondering if anyone more knowledgeable than I
could let me know if by tweaking things I can get the device working

lspci shows "30:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4310
UART (rev 01)"

Any input gratefully received.
