to get the above card working in Fedora 8 I did the following (as root)

get the latest firmware
wget http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2

uncompress it
tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2

change directory to where the uncompressed files now are

cd broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5
cd driver/

add the firmware

b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta_mimo.o

associate with an Access Point called wireless_g with a 64 bit wep key qqq99.
iwconfig wlan1 mode "managed" essid "wireless_g" key "7171713939"

i do windows too
