The madwifi package from RPMForge contains all the needed bits for the 
Atheros chipsets.  Into the bargain it uses the DKMS stuff to rebuild 
the modules when you install a new kernel, too, so no scrambling to 
install a new package to get your WiFi back.

I'm using a similar setup, but trying NetworkManager to handle the heavy 
lifting, with excellent results.  The laptop I'm using pretty much 
worked with no issues with a 3Com 3CRPAG175 and a Zyxel card, both 
Atheros-based.  I've used it with no problems on AEP and WPA/WPA2 
wireless LANs successfully.  It was a pleasant surprise!
