These are provided in packages called foo-kmdl-<you kernel's uname -r
here> right next to where you found the above packages.

If you use yum and point to ATrpms the all you usually need is just

yum install iwlwifi

or

yum install ipw3945

depedneing on what you'd like to use. If you don't have the kmdl
plugin for yum, the assist yum with

yum install iwlwifi-kmdl-`uname -r` or
yum install ipw3945-kmdl-`uname -r`

or if you don't want to use yum, just get the missing packages as you
got the first ones.
