http://slackwiki.org/index.php/Wifi might help, although it is centered around Slackware. It may help, though.

Have you done the configuration stuff using iwconfig?

The steps as I understand them after getting the driver installed is to configure the device using iwconfig (the ndiswrapper website's installation instructions goes over this pretty good) and then to configure it using your distro gui tools or messing with the ifcfg-wlan0 file (located in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ in Fedora Core 5).
