Thanks Gossamer, but how do i access the windows drivers from Mandriva?
And what do you mean by repositries (sorry, but I'm new to linux)
Actually, the same you would with Windows. As it turns out the broadcom drivers don't actually install, they just extract.
See windows would normally just let you locate the drivers via device manager, that location of course would be the place you extracted the files.
Basically this is the same-game. You go to broadcom's site, locate your hardware and download the driver for it. Then use wine to extract the files.
YOU DO happen to have a different card than I do, however the premise is still the same, ndiswrapper works on tons of hardware including stubborn old hardware and devices that aren't so Linux friendly.
