Kudzu bit me with this driver back in FC1 and I haven't been willing to
give it another chance....  So I just choose Ignore each time I upgrade
my kernel and reinstall this driver with that script.

And just to complete the picture, I added one line to the
/etc/modprobe.conf (remember modules.conf was for 2.4):

alias ath0 ath_pci

And I have the following ifcfg-ath0 file in

# Atheros Communications, Inc.|AR5211 802.11ab NIC
ESSID=<put your SSID here>
KEY=<put your hex WEP key here>

Then when I finish booting I login and either do an "ifup ath0" or I do
an "ifup eth0" depending on if I am connected wireless or wired.
