According to intel's linux wireless site, the intree driver should be included in the 2.6.26 kernels.  I just tried the test kernel-2.6.26.3-29.fc9.x86_64 and the intree driver is not included.

It's in the 2.6.27 kernel.
You can try the Fedora 10 alpha/beta to see if that works. F9 will get that kernel eventually.
