Hello experts... Just starting to get into linux... I downloaded/installed Fedora Core 5 to an IBM 2366 laptop with an internal cisco mini pci wifi card...

I found kwifimanager and opened it to connect to the internet. When I hit "scan for network" the error comes up:

Unable to perform scan. please make sure the executable "iwlist" is in your $PATH.

    iwlist is part of wireless-tools and if installed will be in /sbin, /usr/sbin, or /usr/local/sbin
