Yes. It is actually simpler to download the 2 packages from wicd.sourceforge.net, and make && make install. That avoids the sort of conflicts you got.

Please post 'ifconfig wlan0'. Use system-config-network to configure the wireless interface. If you get wicd installed, then do a 'chkconfig wicd on' and 'service wicd start', then use the desktop icon for wicd-client, and configure the wireless card there too. It usually helps to start by turning OFF all wireless security on the router and on the laptop, while you get the rest of it working, then add MAC filtering and WPA keys etc. last.

Sounds like you are actually quite close. Once wired is working, the universe of points of screwup gets a lot smaller!
