[driverloader] wpa_supplicant on Fedora Core 5

on Fedora Core 5, you do not have to use the 'dldr_wpa_supplicant' 
package available on our web site as a WPA supplicant is already 
available in Fedora Core 5.

Please make sure that you can see an access point in the output of the 
'iwlist scanning' command in a root shell. Please note that as long as 
you do not see an access point in the output of the previous command, 
you will be unable to connect to a wireless network.

With Fedora Core 5 on a laptop, the use of NetworkManager is 
recommended. NetworkManager can probably be installed with the 'yum 
install NetworkManager-gnome' command in a root shell.

If you require more assistance, please send at support at linuxant.com the 
output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp 
('driverloaderdiag.txt'). It'll help us solve the problem.
