    so, now i went to the madwifi website, and did what they said to, log in as root, then create the file i did, but it said the file already exists, which it does, so when i go back to the make command it still say this is missing?
    help is required?

    I had troubles with Mandriva and the madwifi driver.
    I was told it was in the Mandriva club, but not being able to access the net, made it kind of useless.
    With pclinuxos, my Atheros card worked out of the box with the madwifi driver.
