The Intel IWL4965AGN and IWL5000 are supported by the standard Fedora
kernel, you just need the matching firmware from the standard Fedora
repository (iwl4965-firmware resp. iwl5000-firmware).

The Ralink ones are supported by (somewhat buggy) out-of-tree drivers which
are currently in RPM Fusion, getting better drivers into the kernel itself
is work in progress.

Atheros chipsets are supported by the ath9k driver, see
http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k for details. As that one
is in the kernel, that may be a better option than Ralink. And it doesn't
even require firmware.

I'm not sure about other manufacturers.
