Thanks for your help.  "I am up and running now" with the FC4 kernel and
the new ipw2200 driver (version 1.0.4 from SourceForge).

Here is what I did:
=================================================================================

Note: the new driver only supports 2.6 kernels.

Step 0: get ipw2200-1.0.4.tgz and build the new driver.

Step 0.1 get new firmware: ipw2200-fw-2.3.tgz

Step 1: First backup/rename the old wireless drivers then install new
*.ko files:
/lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200
ipw2200.ko


/lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ieee80211
ieee80211_crypt_ccmp.ko
ieee80211_crypt.ko
ieee80211_crypt_tkip.ko
ieee80211_crypt_wep.ko
ieee80211.ko


Step 2: Back old ipw2200 firmware files, remove old softlinks and make
new softlinks to version 2.3 of the firmware.
/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware

[williams jaguar firmware]$ ls -l
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 21 Jun 21 16:56 ipw2200-LICENSE.txt -
> /lib/firmware/LICENSE*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 29 Jun 21 16:57 ipw-2.3-boot.fw -

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 35 Jun 21 16:58 ipw-2.3-ibss_ucode.fw -
> /lib/firmware/ipw-2.3-ibss_ucode.fw*

Step 3: Reboot laptop; since I could not remove the ipw2200 and
ieee80211 modules with "rmmod"

After system boots:

Step 4: 
ifconfig eth1 down
iwconfig eth1 key 12345678901234567890123456
ifconfig eth1 allmulti up

Step 5: configure wpa_supplicant.conf
and then Start WPA
wpa_supplicant -i eth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -D ipw -B


Step 6: Start wpa command line client
wpa_cli
>logon

Step 7: Open another shell and as root:
dhclient eth1


Happy surfing.

Things are working well for me under: 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.


Thanks,
Ernest
