I'm running a FC4 system and was trying to follow instructions in the
INSTALL file: ./configure; make; modprobe ath_pci . I expected my system to
recognize ath0 after rebooting.
When I reboot, the startup fails to initialize ath0; ifconfig doesn't see
ath0; /dev/ath0 doesn't exist (although I'm not sure if it should exist).
lsmod|grep ath sees something:
ath_pci 84640 0
ath_rate_sample 16776 1 ath_pci
wlan 142492 2 ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
ath_hal 148432 2 ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
Are there any diagnostics that would be helpful for me to provide? Is there
anything else I should be doing to access the network through ath0?

Check dmesg for errors, and ifconfig and (wherever FC
keeps its network config... /etc/sysconfig/network
IIRC) in case ath0 has been assigned a different name.
