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

That wifi device is not going to work under the kernel-2.6.26, but the kernel-2.6.27 has the drivers for that chipset and they work perfect in FC10.
I have a eeePC702 with the Ar5007EG and is working great in FC10.
