I'm looking at the website http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/Distro/RedHat
as I try to get my wireless card (ZyXEL G-102) to work on Fedora Core 5. Can someone please interpret the instructions: "all you have to do is point it (yum) to ATrpms and use..." How do I point Yum? I have Yum running in a terminal window, running as 'su'. I've tried yum -help, and alas, there are no helpful clues on how to 'point' yum anywhere.

Here's an excerpt from the instructions on the madwifi site:
===============================================================
"Use uname -r to determine which kmdl you need to download. If you use a depsolver like smart/yum/apt, all you have to do is point it to ATrpms and use

smart install madwifi madwifi-kmdl-`uname -r`

Replace smart with yum or apt as appropriate. Note that you will have to install a new pair of madwifi*-kmdl packages for each kernel update, as the depsolvers aren't yet capable to automate this. "
===============================================================


Here's what I tried in my terminal window and what followed:
===============================================================
[root@localhost ~]# yum install madwifi madwifi-kmdl-'uname -r'
