I was able to get things working by installing the dkms from Fedora
Extras. For some reason, the much older version at rpmforge is
installed when I simply do 'yum install dkms'.
After using yhe sequence
yum -y --disablerepo=rpmforge install dkms
yum -y install dkms-ipw3945
I think that if dkms is just removed from the repository for the distros
where it exists in Extras, then everything will work. I'm using FC6.
