this wiki page i wrote might already be a bit out of date but you can
follow along and see what happens:

http://www.crashcourse.ca/wiki/index.php/Broadcom_wireless_on_Fedora

it worked for me for fedora 7 and f8t1.  i did have to add a new entry
to /etc/modprobe.conf to have the wifi adapter show up when i ran
system-config-network.

i should probably update that page.
