I can see my drivers and firmware installed from the following command
linux-v6ib:/home/harish/Desktop # cd /lib/firmware/
linux-v6ib:/lib/firmware # ls
2.6.27.7-9-pae 3CXEM556.cis b43legacy COMpad4.cis E-CARD.cis MT5634ZLX.cis PCMLM28.cis PE520.cis tamarack.cis

This was my next command to load my b43 drivers
linux-v6ib:/lib/firmware # /sbin/modprobe -r b43
linux-v6ib:/lib/firmware # /sbin/modprobe b43

This shows my drivers are loaded

Thanks…
My laptop is now wireless…
I have few more questions. how can i make it at boot time… ?
and in our university we have wifi available. If we want to connect to the wifi we have to use our username and password to get connected to the wifi. But using the Knetworkmanager doesnt broadcast all the networks. I explcitly used my SID to connect.
Can you please tell me the procedure ?

Thanks
