Freshrpms have rpms for this driver
http://zod.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=903 which is probably the easiest
way to install. It seems that livna are also working on packaging it.

You could also get the 1.2.0 version from
http://ipw3945.sourceforge.net/ which appears to have a simpler build

Thanks, I see it now in Livna's wishlist. The FreshRPMs solution is
merely a link to the sourceforge solution. The situation looks bad-
I'd have to install a mirad of other things to get it working. I'll
email the good folks at livnaand ask if they need a beta tester.

Thanks, Mark.
