Have you entered ndiswrapper as the card driver in YaST->Hardware->
Network Card. It sounds as though Yast still has the prism driver in the
I know in Gentoo (probably a different location but similar fine in FC) there is a file called: /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 which you can edit to tell kernel to load modules at startup see if you can find a similar file and if prism54 is there, if so delete, and add ndiswrapper. Or you could go into your kernel and remove prism54 module completely and it would no be able to load since it wouldn't be there. (if you used kernel prism driver and not some outside source patched into the kernel).
actually I was just googling and it looks like you could edit: /etc/modprobe.conf and add ndiswrapper there.
