I would think it would be a simple rpm install (and then some configuring) - but
I guess there is no prepackaged kernel-module-prism54 rpm for FC2

http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/wlan/full/downloads-fc2-kernel-i686.php
has a 16K kernel suitable for use with ndiswrapper.

And with 2.6 kernels - you shouldn't have to install the source rpm ni
order to install additional kernel modules. The relavent
'kernel-build' info is already part of the kernel - and the
'ndiswrapper/nvidia drivers' should be able to find this stuff during
thier install/compile
