A little improvement: there is no need to type the kernel version 
manually.  There is a more universal way to find the sources of the 
current kernel:

KERNEL_PATH=$(shell readlink -f /lib/modules/`uname -r`/source)

"source" is preferred over "build" because kernels can now be built 
outside the source tree (not important for stock FC3 kernels).

"readlink -f" resolves all symlinks, just for prettiness.  Those using own 
kernels will see paths under /usr/src/linux, which is mode readable than 
e.g. /lib/modules/2.6.11-rc2/source.

I don't think wifi0 is a "virtual dumb device".  It should be sufficient 
to say that is should not be used except for purposes outside of scope of 
your document.
