intel pro 3945abg wireless card driver problem

Hi i have a intel pro 3945 wireless card -
i had installed the follwing rpms for FC5 to intall the driver -

once i installed all rpms to load the driver i rebooted system.
then i did this -

[root@chandan ~]# dmesg | grep ieee
ieee80211_crypt: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, 1.1.13
ieee80211: Copyright (C) 2004-2005 Intel Corporation <>
ieee1394: Initialized config rom entry `ip1394'
ieee1394: Host added: ID:BUS[0-00:1023] GUID[623f020060094084]

[root@chandan ~]# dmesg | grep ipw
ipw3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945 Network Connection driver for Linux, 0.0.74dipw3945: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation
ipw3945: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

it shows both ieee and ipw are loaded - i chked it by doing
ipw3945 170920 0
ieee80211 32072 1 ipw3945
ieee80211_crypt 9088 1 ieee80211

i got this - it means modules got loaded if i am nt wrong ...

I now start system-config-network & and then goto NEW>wireless connection> it doesnot show me my driver.
I then clicked the hardware tab there it shows me eth1 device and when i click edit i says intel pro unknown device driver - when i click ok it gives me an error -

Command failed: /sbin/modprobe 3c501

FATAL: Module 3c501 not found.
please chk the settings and try again ...

some one please tell me what to do to install and properly cnfigure my wireless card.
