I'm new to linux and could use any help appreciated. I'm trying to get my network card working. I know that the card uses the atheros chipset and fc4 doesn't have built-in support for it. From searches, it appears I need to use madwifi (and also sharutils). I installed sharutils (i think, not sure if i did it correctly) and then followed the guide on the madwifi site for newbies (

Now, I'm stuck at the "Loading the WiFi Module" step. I'm pretty sure everything was done right before. I try typing "modprobe ath_pci" and it tells me that the modprobe command can't be found. Also, "iwconfig", "ifconfig", and "iwlist" do not work.

Can anyone help me with this or tell me of another way to get my network card to work? BTW, I do not have any other type of internet connection to work with while using linux. Thanks in advance for any help.
