fedora 9 on acer aspire one

Problems installing Fedora 9 on Acer aspire One 150-Ab

With unetbootin + Fedora9live iso I've made a bootable usb.

I installed Fedora 9 on the aspire one by clicking the icon on the desktop 'install to harddrive'.

After install and reboot the startup is rather slow and linux hangs on a certain point for several minutes and then continues...

After loging in I get the message that there is a kernel error but I can continue using the system.

On http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Acer_Aspire_One this problem is known.

Where I'm stuck now is the following :
I need to activate or my wireless card (atheros) or my ethernet-card (realtek). So I can update my kernel and stuff...

When I do lspci both the cards are displayed.

I've blacklisted ath5k and want to install the latest version of madwifi but when I give the command 'make' I get the message that make is an unknown command...

Don't really know what to do now...

That's the card it's using.

Were there issues with the wired network card for you? I don't recollect even trying with the wired one.

At this point, however, I'm planning on getting the 6 cell battery 160 gig hard drive model, wipe XP and put on Fedora.
