I tried that, and got the following result:

root:# cp atml-firmware-1.3/*/*bin/lib/firmware/
cp: missing destination file operand after `atml-firmware-1.3/*/*bin/lib/firmware/'
Try `cp --help' for more information.
you need a space between bin and /lib
cp atml-firmware-1.3/*/*bin /lib/firmware/

I got it to work, thanks :) - but it only works with my Compact wireless-G adapter :(. Now is there a way to make it work with a wireless-B adapter?

You need to provide a space between you source and destination paths. (space exagerated below)
cp atml-firmware-1.3/*/*bin        /lib/firmware/

How do I get it to work with my Wireless-B adapter? So far it only seems to work with my Wireless-G adapter.

Understand you have two adapters, one -B and one -G?
Are both USB?
Are both plugged in at the same time?
What are the specs on the one that is not working?

They are NOT plugged in at the same time, but the information that is printed on the adapter that's not working (the wireless-B adapter) says that it is 2.4GHz 802.11b, and the model number is WUSB11 2.0. And yes, both of the adapters in question are USB.

Locater,

A couple of years ago I bought several usb wireless adapters which were linux compatible for about $10 each.  If you want info re same let me know.  Just plug them in.  Nothing else needed.

John
You did? Cause I am moving soon and may need wireless so I could  use this info if you don't mind.
