Just for grins, I moved the /lib/firmware directory on my FC3 install so
that modprobe couldn't find it, then tried to start my Intel wireless
card.  Here's what I got:

|| ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
|| ipw2200: ipw-2.2-boot.fw load failed: Reason -2
|| ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: 0xFFFFFFFE

So, like the other poster says - have you installed the firmware for the
card?  The driver won't work without it.
