Right. Already tried that.

OK, so I've got to get the sources for ivtv and follow that path. That
makes sense, actually. :-) (I already had them, but ran into problems, so
went back to the pre-packaged ones from the atrpms site - that would seem
to be my mistake).

Nope, the kernel is loading the madwifi (ath_pci, wlan, etc) modules for my
WG311, no problem. Although, granted, it does look like that would be the
problem from the depmod output - perhaps the pointers moved, which would
make sense based upon your hint about how the modules are made.
Thank you very much for your fast response. Much appreciated!
