thanks a lot for ur help
i followed the instructions, but i have a problem in one step, the step of
installing ieee80211 subsystem.
i get the following error

[root at localhost ieee80211-1.2.15]# make
Checking in /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 for ieee80211 components...
find: /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build/: No such file or directory
egrep: /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build//.config: No such file or
directory

make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build: No such file or directory.
Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2

[root at localhost ieee80211-1.2.15]# make install
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build M=/root/ieee80211-1.2.15modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/build: No such file or directory.
Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2

any ideas about what may cause that......
