Try taking the i out of your options. It's not necessary.

I notice the folder you have stored your firmware in is called
'wireles_rpms'. Does this mean you used a HostAP RPM? If you did, you
probably want to get the source code and build it yourself. I know that
stable release 0.1.2 does not have firmware downloading capability, but
stable release 0.1.3 or development release 0.2.0 might. I have one of
these cards in another computer and I used a development CVS snapshot to
build the driver. That was before 0.1.3 and 0.2.0 became available,
though. Firmware downloading may be available in either of these
releases. Can someone confirm this?
