I would suggest using the livna src.rpm
You build it on your system against your kernel.

IE -

rpmbuild -bb kernel-madwifi.spec --target="i686" --define 'kernel `uname
-r`'

Is your wifi card an atheros card though?

IE -

[testing fc4t2 ~]$ /sbin/lspci |grep -i "atheros"
01:07.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212
802.11abg NIC (rev 01)
[testing fc4t2 ~]$ 

That lets me know it is atheros, so I know madwifi will probably work.
I'd check first if I were, as madwifi won't work if it isn't atheros.
