Try to install the WiFi drivers with ndiswrapper (is installed by default)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NdisWrapper
Pardus does not offer a graphical frontend (yet) so you will have to configure it on the commandline.

With installing I also had a problem with the grapical drivers, and with booting I got the message:
indefined resolution.

Willem ordered a HP 2133 Mini-Note PC FU338EA.
Maybe he has the solution to the problem?
Which driver did you use?

away for Xmas and needed 2133 fully operational.
Loaded XP + HP drivers all working but slower!
Pardus is my preferred kde distribution.
Looking forward to installing fresh in new year.

Having time to test Pardus v2008.2  on my HP 2133 (today)
So far great - screen and wireless work out-of-the-box

Thanks Pardus Team

For 2009, install the b43-fwcutter package, then follow the instructions for Fedora from http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43. Then it works apart from the status light on the switch.

....... then follow the instructions for Fedora from http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43.
Which of the commands from the Fedora instructions should be executed in a Konsole ?
("yum install b43-fwcutter wget" isn't one of them, I think)
I don't have the hardware myself, so I am not able to test this.

Thanks, this isn't the problem.
I see in the link at the Fedora instructions

b43-fwcutter tool for extracting firmware from windows driver
In Pardus the package b43-firmware-4.150.10.5-1-2.pisi is installed by default.
So I see 2x firmware and this is a little strange for me.
I am trying to get the exact procedure to get the 02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01) working.
This is for somebody on the Dutch forum.
