My Intel Pro Wireless 2200BG required the latest firmware drivers to be

Just follow the instructions, reboot and it will be working...

Note: You may not see the wireless indicator lit, but as soon as you
connect through Network Manager, it will light-up...

Note that the initscripts update referred to on that page is still in
updates-testing, not yet in updates.  Hopefully that will change soon.

Is it safe to update the firmware package to ipw2200-firmware 3.0-2 even if
not yet using the latest kernel? Or should both be updated at the same time?

kernel-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5 (customized)

You already have the latest firmware. ipw2200-firmware-3.0-1.lvn5 includes both firmware versions 2.4 and 3.0, which are all that are needed for FC5. The latest (still updates-testing) initscripts update is appropriate (indeed necessary) for kernels since 2.6.16 was first released for FC5.
