I just got a Compaq Presario F700 which has an Atheros chip based wifi
PCI express card. I check on the web and found that I had to install
madwifi-hal.

I can't find that package in livna, nor can I find it in atrpms, so I
installed kmod-madwifi and madwifi from livna (which installed for
dependencies iwl4965-firmware), but even though the module gets loaded
automatically, the card doesn't work.

What's wrong?
You probably have the wrong driver.

I have AR5007EG and but lspci indicates it's an AR242.

If you have Windows installed, look at the device under
Windows.
