Man, if I could read, I'd be dangerous.  I'm glad I went back to that
install page and looked again.  I originally read .../en/_$basesearch_ (so
that's what I wrote).  Reality: .../en/_$basearch_ (as in base archive ?)...
Sorry about that... Newbie panic attack.  It's reading now.

I'd have to see your yum.conf...

Don't remove your other entries... just make sure you add this to bottom 
of your yum.conf file.

[at-stable]
name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever stable
baseurl=http://apt.physik.fu-berlin.de/fedora/$releasever/en/$basearch/at-st
able

I don't care where it is... it's the only place I've found the ipw2100 
drivers all nicely packaged in RPM's for FC2 and the 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 kernel.

Besides you can still use the manual way... of surfing the atrpms.net 
site and then grabbing the 6 files I mentioned before... then just use 
rpm -ivh /module.rpm/ to install them.
