    I think I might be getting closer. ls -l /usr/src/linux doesn't do anything because that folder doesn't exist. Also, KERNELPATH=/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 isn't quite right either apparently. However, I got a new error by setting the KERNELPATH to KERNELPATH=/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.18/linux-2.6.18.i686/ then I get a new error. The current error is:

    [root@localhost madwifi-0.9.2.1]# make KERNELPATH=/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.18/linux-2.6.18.i686/
    ./kernelversion.c:13:30: error: linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory
    Checking requirements... ok.
    Checking kernel configuration... /bin/sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `|'
    /bin/sh: -c: line 0: `echo char *uts_release = UTS_RELEASE; | grep -q -i '^[2-9]\.[4-9]\.' || { \'
    make: *** [configcheck] Error 2

    It looks like it found the .config file it was looking for but still doesn't know where the utsrelease.h file is.

    if it helps, here the ls -l on the folder I pointed the KERNELPATH to:

    [root@localhost /]# ls -l /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.18/linux-2.6.18.i686/
    total 436

    This is harder than it should be, lets take a different route.
    Evidently you have a working connection to the internet, because you have an updated kernel right?
    Issue this command
    rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm
    Then use yum to install madwifi
    yum install madwifi
    after that issue this command
    neat
    Then create a new wireless connection from the GUI.

    Holy crap! That was so much easier. I wish I had done that two weeks ago. Anyway, it works now. I had to restart to get it to recognize the card before I could configure it but it works now. Thanks so much for the help!

    Cool beans, glad you got it working. For future reference, you don't need to reboot the machine, just restart the network with this command as root.
    service network restart
