I'm running the rpm from livna - it's ndiswrapper-1.53-2.fc8 at the 
moment - it usually updates when they update the kernel - a few times 
when this hasn't happened I've had to run a previous kernel for a few 
days until livna catch up.

Just a thought - I'm not running an rt kernel on my laptop with the 
wireless card.

I've not used Rhythmbox much so I don't know hold on:
20 minutes so far from morrow.com - a bit of Pink Floyd and other stuff 
like that - 'The Mars Volta - Eriatarka' at the moment.
Yes it seems to be working OK - 28 min.
Must be down to the rt kernel then.
