Funny, that.  The Centrino 2200BG wireless in my JVC MiniNote worked
almost "out of the box" with recent FC3 kernels.  All I had to do was to
install the firmware files for the ipw2200 driver.

... and THIS card that you mention was a bear to set up (ndiswrapper) and
eventually got returned to the shopo because it kept losing connection and
doing other weird things.

Bought a WG511 card (an older one) with a prism54 chipset for my wife's
non-Centrino laptop and it works beautifully.
