I just installed Centos 5.2 on my wife's IBM thinkpad T41 with Atheros 

It looks like I need to install madwifi to get the wireless to work. Our 
home wireless network uses WPA2

I found the EL5 rpms at atrpms, but there is no madwifi-kmdl rpms for 
kernel 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5.

So, to get the wireless working on my home network, what's the shortest 
path from here? Install madwifi from source (was part the way there but 
discovered the rpms when I looked for the wpa_supplicant stuff)? Or, can 
I use one of the other madwifi-kmdl rpms? Or, go back to an earlier kernel?

Thanks for your help!

Take care,

Kurt Hansen
