Is there an option to stop the F12 auto-update system updating my
kernel. I want to avoid a situation where my kernel gets updated but
there isn't a matching Madwifi rpm in the repositories?

by default yum keeps the last 3 kernels installed. But you can set yum to keep all the updated kernels (see the installonly_limit key in /etc/yum.conf).

Anyway I don't know any third-party repository that still provides madwifi drivers, since Atheros chipsets are supported by the vanilla kernel for a moment. Why do you still need madwifi? Which repo providing madwifi for F12 have you?

Atheros drivers never worked reliably for me.  I lost the connection with them every 5 min. I am still using ndiswrapper and the windows driver. I think it depends on the router one is using.
