Installing Wireless Network Drivers

Specs: Windows XP

I have just install Linux Fedora Core 2 on my PC cause I need it for a class that I'm taking. But anyway, I have a D-Link Wireless Network Adapter on my computer for internet access. I have downloaded the drivers and saved them to my second hard drive. So how do I go about installing the drivers from the second hard drive and mounting the wireless adapter so I will be able to get on the internet through Linux? Thank You in advance...

how are the drivers stored? if the file is a .tar or .tar.gz then it is likely that you will have to manually compile the drivers for them to work on the machine.
If the drivers are in a .rpm format, then it is already precompiled and all you have to do is "Run" the file and it should do most of the work for you
