I used ndiswrapper for years.  When fc6 came out, I decided to switch to
bcm43xx.  Lately it became unstable.  I wish to install ndiswrapper
again.  I uninstalled bcm43xx in that I did an rpm -e and I blacklisted
it in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.   I've also deleted any devices and
hardware that references eth1 (my wireless card) in
system-config-network.

However, I get this:

/etc/init.d/network restart
Shutting down interface eth0:  eth1: error fetching interface

eth1: error fetching interface information: Device not found
eth1: error fetching interface information: Device not found

Bringing up loopback interface:                            [  OK  ]
Bringing up interface eth0:

done.
Why is the network process still looking for eth1 ?

Thanks
In FC6, you also have to list it in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-compat.

Try that.

You probably already know this, but be sure that you have:

options ndiswrapper if_name=wlan0
alias wlan0 ndiswrapper

in /etc/modprobe.conf
