madwifi on FC5 i386

Having some issues in getting my Netgear WG511T card to work... For one, I cannot get madwifi to install. Keep getting the following error:

/bin/sh: line 0: cd: /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build: No such file or directory *** /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build is missing, please set KERNELPATH. Stop.

Any hints on where the Kernelpath in FC5 is?

I would suggest using ndiswrapper over madwifi. I have the exact same card (although I no longer use it since I got a laptop with built-in 802.11g) and I never had much luck with it on madwifi. ndiswrapper was a lot easier for me to setup and works flawlessly for me.

See here for setup instructions.
