Nothing about that file stands out as wrong to me.

I have not used the ndiswrapper from atrpms, so I can't comment on that.

Have you tried NetworkManager?

We will have a newer version of Network Manager and wpa_supplicant in 
the soon to be released CentOS-5.2 (as well as more hardware supported 
in the 5.2 kernel), so maybe that will help.
