I am unclear. Is there a ipw2200 module line in your modprobe.conf
file. Do you see that module loaded when you do a lsmod.

In the latest kernel under FC4 you had to have a line like:
options ipw2200 hwcrypto=0
for the card to work. I also have this card so I ma interested in your
progress.

One last thing which is to look into NetworkManager to configure you
nics rather than system-config-network.
