Thanks for getting back to me.  I was running with ipw3945 in fc6 stock 
kernel.  I wasn't real pleased with it.  I did get it running with wpa2 
at one point but when I put up a new stock kernel I wasn't able to get 
it to work.  I am running a stock kernel and your rt.  If above module 
not yet available for the reason you said I can get by with a wired 
connection on rt and wired or wireless on stock.  Happy 4th.
