The procedure described there is too vague and confusing and incomplete 
for an amateur to follow.  I tried.  There are too many examples of "if 
<confusing piece of gibberish requiring knowledge I do not have> then 
you should <confusing and vague procedure>.  I tried it but could get 
nowhere.  Which is presumably why "Bob" wrote his site.  I am trying to 
help you to help me but you are not making it easy by assuming that I am 
intimate with kernel issues, or even that I am familiar with exactly 
which bits of software are already installed.  I have tried to be as 
clean as possible by installing a complete fresh system from the 14.10 
DVD, but I haven't the foggiest notion what "bcmwl" is or does or why 
there would be one on my system!  I assume that if the 14.10 DVD 
installed it there is a damn good reason why it is there.
