Fedora 14 install

I am having problems installing Fedora 14.
I am reasonably new to Linux and decided to start running Linux on my home
PC. It was a great learning experience working with Windows 7 Boot manager.
When I installed Fedora, I was asked to select some software. Each option I
selected indicated a network connection was required. I assume that was to
use YUM to install updated packages.
Anyway, I had no network connection. I use a Wireless Linksys WMP300N.
This uses the Broadcom BCM4321 chip set ( as seen from lspci -nn).
Some threads I have read indicated that the 4321 chip set was supported
under the Kernel, but I do not see evidence of this. I have also read
threads that suggested I install the Broadcom-wl rpm which was available on
Fedora's web site. I searched the ISO media I burned and the web site but
did not find anything.
I have also scanned the Fedora14 install doc. The doc does not seem to
describe what I saw during the install.
I would appreciate if somebody can point me to a starting place to get this
The install I did do was very minimalistic. It did not install GCC. I see
that on the media but it has many dependencies. I would love to use yum to
install everything I need, but I need a network to do it.
Thank you in advance.
