OK, I meant the user space firmware files installed in 
/lib/firmware/zd1211.  Those are the missing files from the latest build 
(dated 10-20-06) of Fedora Core 6. To make zd1211rw functional I simply 
run/build the userspace firmware module (zd1211_fw_2006-10-20.tar.bz2)  
without having to build (zd1211_2006-10-20.tar.bz2) since kernel module 
(zd1211rw.ko) is already up-to-date (or so I thought).

the fedora stock kernel only display zd1211rw (using lsmod command). If 
I remember correctly, if the vendor driver where installed lsmod would 
display zd1211 without the "rw". If both were installed then lsmod would 
show zd1211 and zd1211rw. I assumed that is not advisable due to 
instability created having both loaded into the kernel.
