thanks, matthew!

i've compiled the driver, modprobe'd it, and put the firmware files in
/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware (as shown in /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent). on
reboot, anaconda found the ipw2200 -- i configured it for DHCP. 

however, attempts to bring up eth1 (which is the ipw2200) either during
boot or subsequently (in system-config-network) yield an "ipw2200 device
does not seem to be present, delaying initialization" error message.

lsmod shows the ipw2200, ieee80211, and ieee80211_crypt modules. 

how can i determine if the firmware is being loaded?
also, i don't see where to set my wireless channel and WEP

so close, and yet so far....
