) I found the following instructions regarding my card:
To enable p54, you must first enable mac80211
<M> Improved wireless configuration API
<M> Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (mac80211)
You can then enable p54 in the kernel configuration under
Device Drivers --->

<M> Softmac Prism54 support
<M> Prism54 USB support
<M> Prism54 PCI support
How do I do this with Vector Linux?
Another issue of importance in this case is the firmware. I do have the firmware, but where do I put it? In other words where will the Vector Linux OS be looking for it?
