Need to install Broadcom 4306 PCI driver in Ubuntu


Just wiped my old XP machine and put Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) on my old Dell laptop - and cannot figure out how to install the necessary wireless driver so I can get it back online! Even tried following one thread to hardwire it - and I think the ethernet port driver is also not on there (not needed going forward either way). I've tried installing what is supposed to be the driver a few different ways. Can anyone help me - starting from scratch - with what to do to get this on-line?
