Re: Configuring Wireless card

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
your card.

My setup isn't quite working yet, but I'm getting
close with the help of people on that mailing list.
