1. Can I unpatch the patch and try again? I think I saved the patch improperly.
If you run patch again it will notice it's patched and ask you if you want to reverse it.
2. When I get errors in my make command where do I look to see what went wrong?
Nowhere except onscreen, unless you did something like "make 2>&1 | tee logfile".
3. If I fix what went wrong can I feel sure that when I do a make again without errors the install is good or do I need to uninstall something and begin all over again?
If everything is "fixed", yes, probably. However, if you run a "regular" Fedora Core 6 kernel there is no need to. Atrpm's has Madwifi RPM's (madwifi-hal-kmdl and madwifi-kmdl, watch your kernel version) and those are all you need to get the ath_ kernel modules loaded. No source compile or dkms necessary.
