[Mageia-discuss] Something wrong with the Udev-rules?

I did some googleing on what Udev really is and what it's supposed to do
for you & this is the wiki-explananation of it:
*"udev* is the device manager for the Linux kernel
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_kernel>. Primarily, it manages
device nodes <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Device_node> in /dev
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard>. It is the
successor of devfs <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devfs> and hotplug,
which means that it handles the /dev directory and all user space
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_space> actions when adding/removing
devices, including firmware <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firmware> load."
Now to my question.......
If udev loads firmware, why does it not assign my Atheros
AR5001-cardmodule ath5k to something?
I checked during the boot of any installation from tty using lsmod &
seeing that the module is indeed loaded, BUT it's not used by something.
