Linux: NETGEAR MA52 on Fedora Core 4

For the sake of those using Google to try to figure out how to get this to work, here's how to get the NETGEAR MA52 802.11b wireless card to work under Fedora Core 4 using the NdisWrapper. These are the instructions I followed:
Created /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo per the instructions above.
rpm --import
yum --enablerepo=livna-stable install ndiswrapper kernel-module-ndiswrapper-$(uname -r)
Downloaded the binary driver from here.
unzip ndis5x-8180(173).zip
/usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -i NET8180.INF
/usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -l
/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper
/usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -m
Setup the network settings as usual.
