You can try to install the firmware files manually. Go to
http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/firmware.php . The right version for
FC4 should be 'Versions v0.19-v1.0.3: v0.19-1.0.3 firmware'. Download
it and do the following as root:

mv ipw2200-fw-2.2.tgz /lib/firmware
cd /lib/firmware
tar -xzvf ipw2200-fw-2.2.tgz

You could also try the 'Versions v1.0.4 and newer: v1.0.4-current firmware'.

After rebooting wireless should work.
