If your using the ipw2200 then you've got an Intel mini-PCI card
in your Acer. My laptop has a broadcom chip (can't use the ipw2200
care because it's an AMD, grr) and I have to use ndiswrapper. I may
try the reverse engineered driver later when I have more time.

the machine i'm working on is a desktop - not a laptop. so this seems to limit
the number of cards that are supported.
