Problem solved. I connected to the internet using a wired connection at the same time as having an active wireless network which allowed package manger to install the iwl5000-firmware for intel pro/wireless 5000 serious.
Wireless is up and running on my Asus N50VC-FP035G Notebook....)
Fedora 10 looks is really nice using the nividia proprietary driver for the the G9300M GS 512MB card (1280 x 800). The Display,
15.4 WXGA high definition screen is slick and overall the 2.53 GHz, 6 MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB feels generally much quicker than in vista ultimate.
Great job fedora.
