Re: newbie question: Installing and loading ath5k drivers

> What did you install for the ath5k drivers?
I downloaded the ath5k drivers from here - "http://wireless.kernel.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2"; [1] 

I built and installed the same using directions given in the "Building and Installing" section of the document http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Download#DownloadlatestLinuxwirelessdrivers [2]
> Try 'service network restart'
Whenver I switch users (logout as user 1 and then login as user 2), I see that the wlan0 interface is not available. Only after I do a "sudo make load" in the ath5k directory, is the wlan0 interface created.

I have the line 'ONBOOT=yes' in my ifcfg-wlan0 script, but the ath5k modules are still not loaded on boot

I have ensured that the ath_pci modules do not exist on my system.
