I am currently running the same kernel version, but with Xen enabled. I 
don't think you can "yum install ieee80211" since it  is not a separate 
stand-alone package but rather part of the kernel package. It seems like 
something is not build/compile right. Maybe you can try re-installing 
the "kernel-devel" package along with the latest zd1211rw snapshots 
(firmware and kernel module) from 
http://www.deine-taler.de/zd1211/snapshots/ if you can. Here are my 
notes for building zd1211rw on Fedora Core:

yum groupinstall developement-tools
yum install kernel-devel.x86_64
# or "kernel-devel.i386" for 32bits kernel or "kernel-xen-devel.x8_64" 
for xen enabled kernel
wget 
http://www.deine-taler.de/zd1211/snapshots/zd1211rw_fw_2006-11-07.tar.bz2
wget http://www.deine-taler.de/zd1211/snapshots/zd1211rw_2006-11-07.tar.bz2
tar -vxjf zd1211rw_fw_2006-11-07.tar.bz2
tar -vxjf zd1211rw_2006-11-07.tar.bz2
cd *fw*07 ; make clean all install
cd ../*07 ; make rm ; make clean all modules_install ins
# remove and re-attached the USB stick
# check to make sure the driver/firmware is loaded
dmesg | grep -e usb -e 1211
# test and report bugs
