ok... sorry, guys. i'm back.

i've dropped my kernel back to the version mentioned above -
2.6.7-1.437.1.ll.rhfc2.ccrma - because i cannot successfully write CD's
with a 2.6.8 kernel. unfortunately, now the ipw2200 no longer works.

i did:

cd /whatever/ipw2200-0.13
make uninstall
make clean
make install
checked that the firmware was still in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/
checked that the relevant kernel configs were the same as the 2.6.8
checked keys-eth1 and ifcfg-eth1

i'm now stuck at my previous problem, that when i try to activate eth1,
i get the error message "ipw220 device eth1 does not seem to be
present". doing rmmod, wait, then modprobe doesn't seem to help this


any new ideas?
