A complete walkthough I made is posted at http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Dell/Vostro-1400 and I'm almost sure this might work for many BCM chipsets. If anybody checked this on diffrent laptops, maybe a universal tutorial could be posted at http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Wireless.

Perhaps you could collaborate with Milos on such a guide?

That will not happen until such time as Broadcom change their
restrictive license. If (when) that does happen, ELRepo will happily
provide kernel independent, kABI tracking kmod package(s) for the
Broadcom wireless cards.
