I am in the process of getting wireless working with
my Intel Pro/2200 Network Connection - that card is
built-in to my laptop. I also had to create both the
"hotplug" and "firmware" directories in
"/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware". Then unpack the firmware
tarball into the "firmware" directory.
Also, join the mailing list (described on the
http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/ page) for support -
there are knowledgable people there who know about
My setup isn't quite working yet, but I'm getting
close with the help of people on that mailing list.
