I forgot to mention the wireless driver that was installed:
     zd1211rw_mac80211, rc80211_simple
The summary should have been:
    wireless driver installed needs an updated version of wireless-tools

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2007-03-31 22:27:37 EDT
Sounds like you're using a third party driver which is built against a beta test
version of wireless tools.  28 is the latest released version.

Not really a bug in fedora.  If your driver still works, then I'd simply say
ignore it.  Else, try and manually rebuild your driver against the wireless
tools in Fedora.

I'm pulling from rawhide build (3.31.07) and the wireless driver is already
build into the kernel, with the exception of user space firmware taken from
   http://deine-taler.de/zd1211/snapshots/zd1211rw_fw_2007-03-31

Anyway, the wireless driver is functional so far.
