It couldn't hurt to do the clean install.  

I'm running the 64-bit FC6 from a clean DVD install and livna's
madwifi rpm works fine.

There is an awful lot of crap in /etc for the modprobe machinery.  Are

might be an interesting experiment to backup the yum upgraded /etc and
compare that to one from a clean install with "diff -ru".
