FC5 ipw2200 Wireless Driver Problems

I am currently running 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.
I have installed ieee80211-1.2.15,ipw2200-1.1.4, ipw2200-firmware.noarch  3.0-2
 
[root@CamelBot ~]# tail /etc/modprobe.conf
alias eth0 8139too
alias eth1 ipw2200
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-intel8x0 index=0
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
options ipw2200 hwcrypto=0 associate=0
alias wlan0 ipw2200

Needed the last line because it kept thinking my wireless card was a ethernet card for some reason

[root@CamelBot ~]# dmesg|grep ipw2200

When I apply settings in system-config-network-gui  it gives me this error as well....
ipw2200 device wlan0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

Thats all the information I think that might be need but if you need more just ask. Thanks.

Any help getting this wireless card to work would be really helpful. A laptop isn't much fun to use without wireless.
