Fedora 12 on LG R560 laptop

I installed Fedora 12 on my new Laptop (LG R560), Below is the status and the resolutions of the issues I faced:

Installation:
No problem was found, Partitions, Installation, Everything worked as expected.

Power Up:
Worked fine.

WIFI:
Didn't worked, Tried to activate the WiFi adapter (Fn + F6) with no luck, According to the Laptop spec its contain Intel WiFiLink 5300, I installed the driver (iwlwifi-5000-ucode-8.24.2.12), But with no luck.
After some research I found that I have RaLink RT2860 and not Intel, So the problem was solved by installing the
kmod-rt2860-PAE.i686 package from the rpmfusion-free-updates repository and reboot.
Now, Fn+F6 do activate the WiFi adapter and I succeeded to connect my Wireless network.

Can you adjust the display brightness? I can't get it to work with Linux on this model...

Thanks,
